Wisdom’s Appearance: Notes from My Guru’s Pith Instructions on The Hearing Lineage of The Quintessential Pith Kilaya


Wisdom’s Appearance is a transcript of the oral instructions of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo on Vajrakilaya according to the hearing lineage of The Quintessential Pith Kilaya. It offers profound and extensive commentary on the practice of Vajrakilaya. The text was translated by Sean Price and edited by the Vajravairochana Translation Committee specifically for the abhisheka given by Shechen Rabjam Rinpoche in 2023. It is available to vajrayana practitioners who have received the abhisheka (also given by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche in 1987, Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche in 2005, and Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche in 2009) and have permission to practice the full sadhana in retreat. It will be especially useful to those practicing Vajrakilaya intensively in retreat.
