A letter to a fellow disciple of Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö offering essential advice on how to practise the celebrated Nyingtik Saldrön guru yoga, which focuses on Jamyang Khyentse in heruka form.
- A Letter to the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Supreme Victorious Guru of the Beings of the Three Realms by Jamyang Khyentse Chökyi Lodrö
Jamyang Khyentse must have written this letter to the Dalai Lama in 1954 or 1955 when meetings on the future of Tibet took place in Beijing. The tone of the letter is optimistic, as Khyentse Rinpoche expresses his gratitude to His Holiness for, as he saw it, securing the right to continue practising Dharma without interference or impediment.
An appeal for funds, written in 1945, on behalf of the Sakya monastery of Sejo (se 'jo) in Dzakhok as they prepared to perform an elaborate torma repelling rite (gtor bzlog) based on the Eight-Deity Pañjaranātha.
