Mipham Rinpoche

Khenjuk (Wyl. mkhas 'jug) — the abbreviated title of The Entrance to the Way of the Wise or Introduction to Scholarship, an encyclopedic treatise composed by Jamgön Mipham Rinpoche at the turn of the twentieth century, which is often one of the first texts to be taught in a shedra. (For information on the text of the same name composed by Sakya Pandita, see Sapan Khenjuk.)


Mipham Rinpoche's famous treatise teaches the vast, the ten topics of knowledge, the profound, the four seals, and the means of maintaining the profound and vast teachings, the four perfect knowledges.
