Wish-Fulfilling Tree

Revealed by Terchen Chokgyur Dechen Zhikpo Lingpa

At the age of twenty-eight, on the fifteenth day of the fourth month in the Fire Dragon Year (May 19, 1856), Chokgyur Lingpa revealed as an earth treasure (sater) the Mahaguru’s biography, The Wish-Fulfilling Tree (Paksam Jönshing)—part of The Sevenfold Cycle of Profundity (Zapa Khordün)—from the sacred site of Akanishta Karma in Tibet. The verses of The Wish-Fulfilling Tree were uttered by the Mahaguru himself, and thus reflect his personal perspective on an extraordinary life—unlike biographies written by another, who can only ever have partial knowledge of the subject. Although it consists of only ten short chapters, The Wish-Fulfilling Tree covers the full span of his biography, from his birth to his departure for the Glorious Copper-Colored Mountain. Each chapter focuses on one important aspect of his enlightened activity, making it easy to get a sense of the unfolding of his journey in our world. The Wish-Fulfilling Tree is thus an autobiography that is truly rare and precious, and is sure to bring blessings to the devoted heart.
