Today’s Lamrim Quote (3 January 2014)

Je Tsong Khapa, Lobsang Drakpa

Je Tsong Khapa, Lobsang Drakpa (1357-1419)

“In order to make familiar to my own mind,
And to help benefit fortunate others as well,
I’ve explained here in words easy to understand
In its entirety the path that pleases the conquerors.
“Through this virtue may all beings be never divorced
From the perfectly pure excellent path” thus I pray;
I, a yogi, have made aspirations in this manner;
You, who aspire for liberation, too should pray likewise.”

From The Concise Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment (also known as Song of the Stages of the Path) by Je Tsong Khapa

As translated in: Songs of Experience on the Stages of the Path by Je Tsong Khapa. Translated by Thubten Jinpa, PhD. PDF available from the Institute of Tibetan Classics.
