Ethics Of Tibet: Bodhisattva Section of Tsong-Kha-Pa's Lam Rim Chen Mo
Ethics Of Tibet: Bodhisattva Section of Tsong-Kha-Pa's Lam Rim Chen Mo
Description
From the Jacket

"One of the great contributions of Tibetan Buddhism to the Buddhist tradition as a whole, and one of the things that distinguishes it from the Mahayana traditions that developed via China, has been the clear and systematic articulation of a doctrine of compassion. This text is perhaps the paradigmatic expression of that and as such is vitally important. It will advance Western access to and understanding of Tibetan Buddhism considerably.

"One of the leading Tibetan scholars in the world has translated this work by the great Tsong-kha-pa, the titular head of the Ge-lug-pa Sect and perhaps the Tibetan equivalent English translator also reveals the encyclopedic mind of Tsong-kha-pa, whose mine. He more than anyone else, shaped the development of Tibetan Buddhism as we know it today.

"This book is very interesting and easy to read, because it is a systematic, step-by-step analysis of the conditions necessary for the progress in spiritual attainment, from the awakening of the mind of enlightenment (Bodhicitta) to the final insight (prajna). It is definitely a useful text for understanding Tibetan Buddhism at the core and for comparative studies involving other systems of thought within Buddhism."

Foreword

Of the many works of the Tibetan master Tsong-kha-pa, few compare in terms of popularity and breadth of influence with his Great Exposition of the Stages of the Path, (Lam-rim Chen-mo) which has been treasured by practitioners and scholars alike for centuries. What distinguishes it as one of the principal text of Mahayana Buddhism is its scope and clarity. It expounds the entire path, from the way one the attainment of complete Buddhahood, which is the final fruit. The various stages of the path are presented so clearly and systematically that they can be easily understood and are inspiring to put into practice.

The heart of Mahayana training is the altruistic aspiration for enlightenment, the practice of the six perfections, and so forth, characteristic of a Bodhisattva. In addition to its clarity, Tsong-kha-pa's presentation of this topic is inspiring due to its sheer authority, for Nagarjuna, Asanga, Shantideva and Kamalashila, but also incorporates advice from the mind training tradition of the early Kadampa masters of Tibet.

This English translation of the section concerning the practice of a Boddhsattva, specifically the first five perfections, is welcome. Nowadays there are many people, who although they do not read Tibetan, have an abiding interest in these instructions.

I admire the worthy intentions of the translator and pray that those who seek actually to engage in this inestimable mode of training will meet with complete success.

Testimonials

I love your site and although today is my first order, I have been seeing your site for the past several years. Thank you for providing such great art and books to people around the World who can't make it to India as often as we would like.

Heramba Ganapati arrived safely today and was shipped promptly. Another fantastic find from Exotic India with perfect customer service. Thank you. Jai Ganesha Deva

I ordered Padmapani Statue. I have received my statue. The delivering process was very fast and the statue looks so beautiful. Thank you exoticindia, Mr. Vipin (customer care). I am very satisfied.
Hartono, Indonesia
Very easy to buy, great site! Thanks
Ilda, Brazil
Our Nandi sculpture arrived today and it surpasses all expectations - it is wonderful. We are not only pleasantly surprised by the speed of international delivery but also are extremely grateful for the care of your packaging. Our sculpture needed to travel to an off-lying island of New Zealand but it arrived safely because of how well it had been packaged. Based upon my experience of all aspects of your service, I have no hesitation in recommending Exotic India.
