Path to Enlightenment in Tibetan Buddhism

Path-to-elightenment-in-tibetan-buddhism_small Enlightenment, the ultimate development of the potential of the mind, is a final release from suffering and limitation. It is a state of peace and bliss wherein is found the perfect benefit for oneself and others. The Path to Enlightenment sets out the means to this greatest human attainment by presenting with exceptional clarity the remarkable Tibetan Buddhist meditations and methods for developing the mind.

Path to Enlightenment is an anthology of Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden’s teachings drawn primarily from Je Tsong Khapa’s Great Exposition of the Stages of the Path and Phabongkha Rinpoche’s Liberation in the Palm of your Hand. It also includes a translation and explanation of the Mind Training in Seven Points by Geshe Chekawa and a complete presentation of the Bodhisattva vows.

Drawing from the sutras and great Buddhist classics, the Path to Enlightenment combines the intellectual rigour of Tibetan scholars with a clear and easy to understand presentation of the progressive stages of spiritual development. A comprehensive textbook, it covers the full breadth and depth of Tibetan Buddhist philosophy with clear explanations of how to put it into practice.

The Path to Enlightenment includes full colour plates, 26 line drawings, a comprehensive English, Tibetan and Sanskrit glossary, a page numbered outline and an 82 page appendix of quotations.
