Versions: W19229

The collection of Kama or commentatorial literature descending in a direct tradition from the teachers at the time of the introduction to Tibet of the Nyingma tradition in the 7th century was that of the brothers of Mindroling, Terdag Lingpa (1646-1714) and Minling Lochen Dharmashri (1654-1718). The actual compilation work was made by Dzogchen Gyalse Zhenpen Taye (b. 1800). Subsequent masters of Kathog and Dzogchen produced other collections of Kama collections. H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche Jigdral Yeshe Dorje (1904-1988) gathered together all of the shastras that were known to exist among the Tibetan Diaspora first in 13 volumes and finally in this magnificent 58 volume collection.
