This is the core dharma teacing for all levels of practice. For us beginners there is great merit in simply reading the text with attention and reverence. As we improve in our accomplishment we find instructions for practice at all levels. Wonderful resource. Geshe Gyatso is amazing for his ability to present the most esoteric doctrines of the Dharma in an easy to understand style of discourse. Any practitioner should be extremely blessed by, and grateful for this text.

  • Corgustari
This is the Instructions step by step of the Path of Buddhism as heard by Geshela Kelsang Gyatson by his Root Guru Trijang. So beautiful.

Beautifully written, highly logical, organized, complete. Nicely indexed. Glossary in back.642 pages in a book small enough to handle very easily. The hardcover edition is at an excellent discount, is sturdy and very attractive. This book is for Buddhists who are studying Lam Rim - a step by step path to enlightenment based on the 84,000 teachings of Buddha. It is not an easy read; it is rather difficult to study. I originally purchased the audio-book version which is read beautifully by John Singleton. Now that I am more serious about wanting to master this material, I purchased this book.
"Modern Buddhism" will be released in hardcover shortly - it should be a worthwhile purchase for Kadampa Buddhists.

There are a number of Lam Rim texts available. For those who do not study Vajrayana Buddhism, this might be confusing. It is said that the historical Buddha (aka Lord Buddha Shakyamuni) gave 84,000 teachings. They were given to different people at different times, and were focused on where that person or people were in their process, and what those particular person/s needed to know in next step towards enlightenment. So what might be the needed instruction at one part of the path, might be detrimental at another part of the path. At some point, you might need to go east, but at another west. This can leave a Buddhist quite confused. So the great accomplished master we now know as Atisha, organized the teaching of the Buddha into a method called the Lam Rim, or graduated path. You follow the path in the correct order, and it makes accomplishment much easier.

Many spiritual masters since, primarily Tibetan, have expanded on Atisha's short work with more extensive commentary. The difficulty in reading them, is that even with good translations, they are focused on a culture and time that is very foreign to modern westerners. The cultural dismissal of women is easily seen in many Lam Rim texts.

Now this commentary comes on the scene. The author has taken the Lam Rim teachings that he received from his own teacher, and taught them in a way that is accessible to westerners. And it is respectful of both men and women. I can read this Lam Rim so much easier than other Lam Rims I have read. Even though the author is not my teacher, I appreciate the care that went into this work. I highly recommend it.
