“What is the Lamrim Tradition? It is the essence of all teachings of Buddha, the one path traveled by the high beings of the past, present and future, the legacy of the masters Nagarjuna and Asanga, the religion of supreme people traveling to the earth of omniscience, the unabridged synthesis of all practices included within the three levels of spiritual application…. Therefore, to hear, contemplate, or meditate upon a Lamrim discourse is fortunate indeed.”
From The Essence of Refined Gold – Stages of the Path to Enlightenment by His Holiness the Third Dalai Lama, Sonam Gyatso, as published in The Path to Enlightenment by His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama. Translated by Glen Mullin. Snow Lion/Shambhala Publications.
