Liberation Upon Hearing: The History of the Great Jarung Kashor Stupa

Ngakchang Shakya Zangpo

In this famous history of the sacred stupa of Boudha, Guru Padmasambhava recounts the stupa’s origins. In response to a request from King Trisong Detsen, he tells how a humble poultry-woman first extracted a promise from the king and then built the stupa together with her four sons, who were all later reborn as prominent figures in the introduction of Buddhism to Tibet. Guru Padmasambhava also describes the benefits to be gained from circumambulating the stupa and making offerings before it, and concludes with a series of prophecies concerning the stupa’s restoration.
