Buddhist teachings provide numerous methods for bringing greater meaning and happiness into our lives and into our relationships with others. In A Complete Guide to the Buddhist Path, Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen Rinpoche reveals these methods in direct, vibrant, down-to-earth language. At the core of this work lies The Jewel Treasury of Advice, a text composed by Drikung Bhande Dharmaradza (1704–1754), the reincarnation of Drikung Dharmakirti. Khenchen Rinpoche interprets these ancient teachings with compassion, humor, and a keen awareness for their relevance in contemporary Western life. Those who sincerely want to study and practice the Buddha's teachings will find this an indispensable guide.


"I am delighted to know that Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen has written A Complete Guide to the Buddhist Path. Because it is written in a manner that is easy to understand, it will reach far and wide. This book contains the complete teachings of Buddhism, from the very basic up to the very profound trainings of the Mahayana and Vajrayana systems, including the Six Yogas of Naropa. . . . The practice of all these teachings step-by-step will lead us one day to bear the fruit of complete enlightenment. I therefore thank Khenchen Rinpoche and welcome his light of commentary to illuminate the teachings of our great Lamas making them available to all."—Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang, from the Foreword

"A masterpiece of poetry and a profoundly moving religious instruction . . . [it] indeed encompass[es] the entire path as it is understood in Tibetan Buddhism. . . . The book can be read from start to finish or opened anywhere. The editors have done an excellent job with the book."—Buddhadharma: The Practitioner's Quarterly

"A fresh, intimate, and timely interpretation that will meet the needs of those who want to deepen their practice and understanding of the teachings of the lamas of Tibet. Reading this work is like having a wise, compassionate, and learned teacher at your side one who knows that laughter is an important component of spiritual life. . . . Readers new to Tibetan Buddhism will be aided by the glossary of specialized terms and the descriptions of persons mentioned in the book and will find the annotated bibliography a valuable aid to further study. . . . Th[is] work contains the essence of dharma teachings and goes deep enough to meet the needs of the serious student; it is a highly recommended guide to be kept at one's side and read over and over again."—Spirituality & Health

"A Complete Guide to the Buddhist Path lives up to its title by presenting the methods that Buddhism offers for improving the quality of one's life in plain terms accessible to readers of all backgrounds. . . . Invaluable to anyone seeking to better follow, understand, and practice the Buddha's teachings in everyday life."—Library Bookwatch
