Beacon of Certainty (Tib. Ngeshé Drönmé; Wyl. nges shes sgron me) — a text by Mipham Rinpoche. It was composed by Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche at the age of seven. Definitive knowledge needs to be arrived at in order to attain the fruit of the path. In this text the young Mipham answers seven questions going through the different approaches of the diverse traditions of Tibetan tradition, in order to bring about this definitive knowledge.
