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.

    " I love this guy. Helped me understand that my spirituality is very grounded in this world, and that I didn't need some 'god' to teach me the difference between right and wrong. "

    " I'm not ready to call myself Buddhist (I was going to say "become" instead of "call myself", but I'm not sure exactly what that would mean or really what the difference is. "call myself" sounded more like I don't know what it meant to "become"), but a great introduction to the practice and beliefs. "

    " I don't know why I found this hilarious. But the advice to think about death and the various manner of dying set me into giggles and the consideration of all of the horrors of coming back as an insect brought me to tears of laughter. "
