The Namshe Yeshe, the Shastra Distinguishing Consciousness and Primordial Wisdom, was composed by the third Karmapa, Rangjung Dorje (1284–1339), and stands alongside the same author’s Nyingpo Tenpa as one of the most influential texts in the Karma Kagyu intellectual tradition. Its central concern is to delineate the nature of mind and its role as the ground of both samsara and nirvana, error and liberation.

The Lamp that Dispels Darkness was composed in 1986 by the Tibetan Buddhist scholar and yogin, Karma Thinley Rinpoche. It is a brilliantly detailed commentary on the Namshe Yeshe, providing a precise and authoritative explanation of the text in the traditional Buddhist interlinear commentarial style.
