Parnashavari Sadhana

from the Collected Works of Lord Jigten Sumgön


Other Publications

The practice of Parnashavari is certain to be accomplished by a pure mind stream with love, compassion, bodhicitta, and a very clear samadhi. Once, when great harm threatened me, by doing the practice of the goddess Parnashavari, the mother who is the embodiment of love, I was freed from dangers. Therefore, recalling her kindness, I have composed this practice. By this means, may all achieve supreme awakening!

—Drikung Kyobpa Jigten Sumgön

At present, all regions of the world are affected by a terrible epidemic. May this sadhana compiled and arranged from the quintessence of the Parnashavari sadhanas written by Drikung Kyobpa Jigten Sumgön, along with [my] single-minded supplications to him, pacify the epidemic, and also the karmic, afflictive, and cognitive obscurations; and may it swiftly lead us to the supreme state of complete awakening.

A Commentary on the Parnashavari Sadhana from the Collected Works of Lord Jigen Sumgön


Dear Dharma friends,

May all be auspicious and virtuous! OM AMI DEWA HRI!

As coronavirus COVID-19 persists and disasters are rampant around the world, our hearts go out to all who have lost their dear ones and who are facing difficulties. Today, we are pleased to announce the release of the book A Commentary on the Parnashavari Sadhana from the Collected Works of Lord Jigten Sumgön which aims to help practitioners to strengthen bodhicitta, invoke blessings, pacify all obstacles, and progress on the Fivefold Path of Mahamudra through their sincere practice.

His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche and Most Venerable Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen Rinpoche have kindly written the forewords for the book. Two quotes from the forewords are as follow:

Thanks a lot for writing this book. It is especially important for when we encounter any kind of suffering and hardship. Everybody should practice this!

— Gar Konchog Gyaltsen

In order to have a breakthrough in pacifying the pandemic, Zabrina Leung was inspired by pure, altruistic intention and has produced this book of Lord Jigten Sumgön’s teachings, meditation and mantra recitation of Parnashavari, including an introduction to Buddhism. I rejoice in this publication and pray that it will benefit those who pursue this practice.

— Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen
