Today’s Lamrim Quote (29 October 2013)

“The spiritual system known as the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment (Lamrim) is what those wishing to elicit the essence of this human life of leisures and endowments should practice. It is the essence of all the teachings of the Buddha, the one and only path trodden by the Superior Beings of the three times; the tradition of the [two] great trailblazers, Nagarjuna and Asanga; the Dharma doctrine of excellent beings journeying towards the level of omniscience; and it covers, without omission, the steps of the paths of the beings of three capacities.”

From The Essence of Refined Gold – Stages of the Path to Enlightenment by His Holiness the Third Dalai Lama, Sonam Gyatso

As translated in: Essence of Superfine Gold: A Guide on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment by The Third Dalai Lama, translated by Dr. Chok Tenzin Monlam, Library of Tibetan Works and Archives, 2012.
