Publisher's Summary

In this extensive lesson, Tenzin Gyatso, the fourteenth Dalai Lama, beautifully elucidates the meaning of the path to enlightenment. His discourse arises from the third Dalai Lama's brilliant and powerful work, Essence of Refined Gold. The subject of this classic Tibetan text is the Lam Rim, a term that literally means "stages on the spiritual path," and it was originally written to summarize the meaning of all the Buddha's teachings. Through this insightful exploration and interpretation, the Dalai Lama offers not only scriptural commentary but also his personal reflections and spiritual advice. His direct approach, lucid style, and practical description of the essential instructions the student must follow to attain enlightenment make The Path to Enlightenment one of the most accessible introductions to Tibetan Buddhism ever published.
