Synopsis

With the intimate freshness of a personal teaching, this book presents the main practices of the Mahayana Buddhist path. It details the attitudes cultivated in meditation—ranging from turning away from cyclic existence to developing love and compassion for all beings, to understanding the profound view of emptiness.

"With great clarity and precision, the words of a renowned Tibetan scholar flow easily to the reader in a stream of deep compassion and profound wisdom."—Joshua Cutler, Director of the Tibetan Buddhist Learning Center

"Kensur Lekden was one of the bright stars of the firmament of Tibetan Buddhism during the last generation of great lamas to be trained in Tibet. The meditations contained in this small book represent clear and compelling instructions from an accomplished master on how to set out on the bodhisattva path."—Donald Lopez, University of Michigan

"The special gift of this book is that the same style of easy comprehension and applicability is ever present, even when dealing with complex topics such as correct view (emptiness) according to the Consequence School."—Branches of Light, the semiannual review journal of Banyen Books

"This book presents with the intimate freshness of a personal teaching the main practices of the Mahayana Buddhist path. It details the attitudes cultivated in meditation, ranging from turning away from cyclic existence to developing love and compassion for all beings to the profound view of emptiness. A beautifully expressed, moving presentation of the major practices of Tibetan Buddhism, like a favorite grandfather conveying his wisdom about life—you can feel the presence of this great teacher."—Jeffrey Hopkins
