Je Tsongkhapa (1357-1419) wrote the Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment or Lam Rim Chen Mo in three volumes. The "Handbook' is the third volume which contains detailed meditation instructions and the philosophical basis for changing belief about how we experience ourselves and the world. The Lamrim Chenmo translation committee published this volume in 2014 which gave the world Je Tsongkhapa's exact words on the subject which many regard as the last word on enlightenment. It is both a great work of literature and philosophy but also a practical instructional manual and presented in a scholarly fashion. However, few people who want to learn from the master himself are not scholars which doesn't mean the writing style is impossible - only difficult for the average reader. The "Handbook" is merely is Tsongkapa's writing placed in an outline form so that his instructional points can be absorbed one at a time. Tsongkapa's sentences consists of strong clauses which lends itself to outlining.The result is a book that opens Tsongkapa's mind in the most direct way possible. I believe that presenting his thinking in an outline form does reflect his incredible depth of thought with precise application. He teaches that the only way to learn about enlightenment is one tiny step at the time. All the steps are here.

Many forms of Buddhism, divergent in philosophy and style, emerged as Buddhism filtered out of India into other parts of Asia. Nonetheless, all of them embodied an ethical core that is remarkably consistent. Articulated by the historical Buddha in his first sermon, this moral core is founded on the concept of karma—that intentions and actions have future consequences for an individual—and is summarized as Right Speech, Right Action, and Right Livelihood, three of the elements of the Eightfold Path. Although they were later elaborated and interpreted in a multitude of ways, none of these core principles were ever abandoned. The Oxford Handbook of Buddhist Ethics provides a comprehensive overview of the field of Buddhist ethics in the twenty-first century. The Handbook discusses the foundations of Buddhist ethics focusing on karma and the precepts looking at abstinence from harming others, stealing, and intoxication. It considers ethics in the different Buddhist traditions and the similarities they share, and compares Buddhist ethics to Western ethics and the psychology of moral judgments. The volume also investigates Buddhism and society analysing economics, environmental ethics, and Just War ethics. The final section focuses on contemporary issues surrounding Buddhist ethics, including gender, sexuality, animal rights, and euthanasia. This groundbreaking collection offers an indispensable reference work for students and scholars of Buddhist ethics and comparative moral philosophy.

The Essence of the Vast and Profound

The Essence of the Vast and Profound

The Essence of the Vast and Profound will soon find its place as one of the greatest lamrim commentaries ever given.

A beloved teacher’s explanation of the path to enlightenment in its first-ever English translation. Pabongkha Rinpoche is renowned as one of the greatest and most charismatic contemporary teachers of Tibetan Buddhism. Both Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and Kyabje Ling Rinpoche, the junior and senior tutors of the 14th Dalai Lama, accounted him as their root guru. Giving explanations of the stages of the path to enlightenment (lamrim) was considered one of his greatest talents—often thousands of students would come to hear his teachings—and with The Essence of the Vast and Profound the English-speaking reader can experience this firsthand. Drawn from teachings given over the course of thirty-six days in 1934 in Tibet’s capital city of Lhasa, The Essence of the Vast and Profound masterfully weaves together Tsongkhapa’s Middle-Length Exposition on the Stage of the Path to Enlightenment, the Second Panchen Lama’s Swift Path, and the Third Dalai Lama’s Essence of Refined Gold. Rinpoche offers wise and compassionate guidance on such crucial subjects as how to rely on a spiritual teacher, how to develop certainty on the path, what it means to take refuge, how to understand karma, and the importance of compassion—explaining the entire spectrum of the Buddhist path, and also inspiring the reader to follow it. The Essence of the Vast and Profound will soon find its place as one of the greatest lamrim commentaries ever given.

Anyone who has read more than a few books on Tibetan Buddhism will have encountered references to the Six Yogas of Naropa, a preeminent yogic technology system. The six practices - inner heat, illusory body, clear light, consciousness transference, forceful projection, and bardo yoga - gradually came to pervade thousands of monasteries, nunneries, and hermitages throughout Central Asia over the past five and a half centuries. Tsongkhapa (1357-1419) was a prolific writer and one of Tibet's greatest yogis and philosophers. His discussion of the Six Yogas is regarded as one of the finest on the subject to come out of Tibet. Glenn H. Mullin's study of the history, substance, and philosophical legacy of the Six Yogas of Naropa, together with his translation of Tsongkhapa's treatise, provides a guide to this tradition.

The first complete English translation of renowned scholar-saint Tsongkhapa's Middle-Length Treatise on the Stages of the Path. Tsongkhapa (1357–1419), the author of the well-known Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment and the teacher of the First Dalai Lama, is renowned as one of the greatest scholar-saints that Tibet has ever produced. A dozen years after writing the Great Treatise, he wrote the Middle-Length Treatise on the Stages of the Path, presented here in its first complete English translation. Half the length of the well-known Great Treatise, this work similarly presents a systematic overview of the Buddhist path. Tsongkhapa begins by abridging the longer work, distilling its explanations for quicker integration. He presents a series of meditations, beginning with recognizing the rarity of our human existence and the great opportunities it affords, followed by reflections on impermanence, suffering, and the promise of liberation from our past actions, until proceeding to the path of bodhisattvas, whose universal compassion seeks to free every being from suffering. Tsongkhapa gives especially detailed instructions on samatha, the deep meditative concentration that is a precondition for the highest insight into the nature of reality. The final and largest section, on that very insight, is unique to this work, particularly Tsongkhapa’s presentation of conventional truth and ultimate truth. Those new to Tibetan Buddhist teachings will benefit from the approachable style of this classic handbook for enlightenment, and beginners and longtime practitioners alike will cherish the clear guidance from one of Tibet’s great luminaries.
