The Buddhism of Tibet combined volume
Description
From the back of the Book

The Buddhism of Tibet consists of four texts, the first two written by the fourteenth Dalai Lama himself and the remaining two chosen by him for Western readers:
The Buddhism of Tibet: In this excellent introduction, the Dalai Lama explains the principal topics and central practices of Buddhism.

The Kay to the Middle Way: The Dalai Lama leads the student to the discovery of the true meaning of emptiness. With acute precision, he presents many insights into the nature of emptiness.

The Precious Garland by Nagarjuna: Originally written for a ding this text is famous for its descriptions of the Bodhisattva path of compassion and for its clear, concise analysis of the Buddha's teaching on emptiness. It describes how to find happiness by cultivating virtues of body, speech and mind and how to amass the stress of merit and wisdom required for enlightenment.

The Song of the Four Mindfulnesses by the 7th Dalai Lama: This short poem, accompanied by a commentary by the present Dalai Lama, contains all the essentials of sutra and tantra. It is to be used as a basis for meditations on mindfulness of the guru, altruism, deity yoga and emptiness.
