Chapter Summary

This fifth volume contains a single work belonging to the set of the Five Treasury. It is entitled Lung rigs mdzod in short and offers a detailed survey of the Bon tradition in general, and of its doxographical presentations of the Nine Vehicles in particular. The composition of this Treasury was requested by several individuals, five of which are mentioned by the author himself. The text itself is mainly concerned with the exposition of the Nine Gradual Vehicles as they are explained in the Central Treasure tradition. According to Tshul khrims bstan 'dzin dbang po's appended prayer, the text was printed through the generosity of Bla ma phrin las from A 'dam in rNga ba province and a certain Blo sher who financed the edition by offering 10 Chinese talents.
