It is commonly believed that the Great Guru Gampopa (otherwise known as Dvagpo-Larhe), compiled this work, and that he handed it on with this injunction: 'I entreat those devotees of generations yet unborn, who will honour my memory and regret not having met me in person, to study this, The Supreme Path, The Rosary of Precious Gems, and also The Precious Ornament of Liberation, along with other religious treatises. The result will be equivalent to that of an actual meeting with myself.'
