The Three Principal Aspects of the Path: An Oral Teaching

by

The Three Principal Aspects of the Path: An Oral Teaching Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The wish for freedom, the altruistic intention, and the wisdom realizing emptiness constitute the essence of the Buddhist path. In this teaching, Geshe Sonam Rinchen explains, in clear and readily accessible terms, Je Tsongkhapa’s (1357–1419) famed presentation of these three essential topics.

Synopsis:

The entire Buddhist path can be boiled down to three essential topics - the wish for freedom, the altruistic intention to be of benefit to others, and the wisdom realizing emptiness. This book goes right to the heart of these topics.

Synopsis:

The wish for freedom, the altruistic intention to be of ultimate benefit to others, and the wisdom realizing emptiness constitute the three principal aspects of the path to enlightenment. These three insights form the indispensable support for all the practices of both sutra and tantra. In this teaching, Geshe Sonam Rinchen explains in clear and readily accessible terms Je Tsongkhapa's (1357-1419) short text on these three principal aspects of the path. The engaging exposition of the essential steps to enlightenment will be appreciated both by those with no previous exposure to Buddhism and by those who wish to undertake the practices of tantra, for which at least a sound understanding of these three is essential.
