Title: The "Records of Teachings Received" in the Collected Works of A mes zhabs: an Untapped Source for the Study of Sa skya pa Biographies
Language of title: English
Author/Creator: Jan-Ulrich Sobisch
One Sentence Summary: A study of one Sakyapa (sa skya pa) teacher and historian's gsan yig or "record of teachings recei."

Description: The author looks at one particular "record of teachings received" (gsan yig) from the Sakyapa (sa skya pa) author and historian A mes zhabs Ngag dbang kun dga' bsod nams (1597-1659). The class of texts known as gsan yig or thob yig ("record of teachings obtained") typically contain detailed records of the textual transmissions and corresponding teacher lineages an individual has received and so provides an invaluable source for Tibetan historical, bibliographical, and textual studies. Jan-Ulrich Sobisch looks at one particular gsan yig to illuminate some of the yet unrevealed history of Sakya lineage, including the Lamdré (lam 'bras) tradition. (Zach Rowinski 2005-06-07)
