Jigten Sumgön’s (1143–1217)Sacred Dharma: The Single Intentionis a key philosophical text for the Kagyu tradition, and it has also been called The great tenet system of the Dagpo Kagyuby Karmapa Mikyö Dorje. It contains the special teachings of Jigten Sumgön, the founder of the Drikung Kagyu, in 150 pithy “vajra statements.” The Nyingma scholar and practitioner, Khenchen Kunzang Palden (Khenpo Kunpal for short), was a student of the famous Ju Mipam Gyatso Rinpoche and Dza Patrul Rinpoche, and he studied and practiced at Dzogchen Monastery in East Tibet. He wrote one of the many commentaries to Jigten Sumgön’sThe Single Intention, and the translation of this annotation commentary constitutes the main part of our book. The seven chapters of The Single Intention are entitled: 1) The Dharma wheels, 2) dependent origination, 3) the vinaya for individual liberation, 4) the bodhisattva vows, 5) the vows of the Secret Mantra, 6) view, meditation, and conduct, and 7) the fruition. Besides the translation of Khenpo Kunpal’s annotation commentary, the book will also contain a translation of the root text, which is a shortened and versified version of Jigten Sumgön’s vajra statements by Lo Trinlé Namgyal (b. 1624). It will moreover be supplemented by a translation of Jigten Sumgön’s direct disciple Rinchen Jangchub’s overview (khog dbub) text that discusses various topics of the Single Intention, and a short biography of Khenpo Kunpal.
