The Jewel Ornament of Liberation was written by Dharma Lord Gampopa (1074-1153 C.E.), who was fully accomplished in the teachings and practices of Buddhism. Lord Gampopa studied the sutra system of training in the Kadampa lineage and obtained tantra training front the great Saint Milarepa. He completely dispelled the darkness of confusion and reconciled all misunderstanding between the sutra and tantra systems. This is why, among Milarepa’s disciples, he was declared to be “like the sun.” Of the many important texts he wrote, the Jewel Ornament of Liberation is probably the most significant. Gampopa said “For anyone who wishes to see me, studying The Jewel Ornament of Liberation is the same as meeting me”.
