The Treasury of Lives


Tsāri is a major mountain and pilgrimage destination in southern Tibet. Comprised of Dakpa Shelri and its surrounding areas, it stands together with Amnye Machen, Khawa Karpo and Kailash as one of the most important mountains in Tibet. It is associated with both Nyingma and later Buddhist traditions, particularly with various Kagyu traditions, chief among them the Drukpa and Drigung, who linked it with the sacred sites of the Cakrasaṃvara Tantra.
