Publisher’s Note

The Wheel of Sharp Weapons, a basic text for the Mahayana training of the mind, was composed by the great Yogi Dharmarakshita. It was brought to Tibet by the great Indian Pandit Atisha (982-1054) and was translated from Sanskrit into Tibetan by Atisha and his main disciple Upasaka Drom Tonpa.

The present English translation from the Tibetan text has been prepared by the Translation Bureau of the Library of Tibetan Works & Archieves and was published as a separate booklet in 1973, reprinted in 1976.

A revised edition published in 1981 includes the commentary to The Wheel of Sharp Weapons given by Geshe Ngawang Dhargyey at the LTWA’s Buddhist philosophy course.

We hope that the publication of this work will benefit many.
