Product Details


“Although this book is immense in its scope, [Traleg Kyabgon] Rinpoche never allows us to lose sight of the key point and ultimate meaning of all the Buddha’s teachings: that it is possible to get to the root of suffering and to bring about lasting happiness for ourselves and others; and that the only way to do this is to work with, understand, tame, and transform our mind.”—Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying
