Description


Central to Buddhism is knowing our own minds. Until we do, we are driven by unconscious, often destructive desire and aversion.

The Fourteenth Dalai Lama’s Stages of the Path: An Annotated Commentary on the Fifth Dalai Lama's Oral Transmission of Mañjusri is the second volume of the Dalai Lama’s outline of Buddhist theory and practice. Having introduced Buddhist ideas in the context of modern society in volume one, the Dalai Lama turns here to a traditional presentation of the complete path to enlightenment, from developing faith in the Dharma to attaining the highest wisdom. This book, compiled by the revered Tibetan lama Dagyab Rinpoché, comments on the Fifth Dalai Lama’s stages of the path titled Oral Transmission of Mañjusri. The volume will appeal to all readers interested in the Dalai Lama’s works, both those new to Buddhism and those looking to deepen their understanding of the Tibetan presentation of the Buddhist path.

About the Author


His Holiness the Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people, a Nobel Peace Prize recipient, and a beacon of inspiration for Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike. He has persistently reached out across religious and political lines and has engaged in dialogue with scientists in his mission to advance peace and understanding in the world. In doing so, he embodies his motto: “My religion is kindness.”

 

His Eminence Loden Sherab Dagyab Rinpoché was born in 1940 in Minyak, eastern Tibet, and at the age of four was recognized as the Ninth Kyabgön (patron) of the Dagyab region. He is the founder of Tibet House Germany (Tibethaus Deutschland). With encouragement, he always emphasizes the benefits of changing one’s mind and strengthening one’s capacity to be a good human being.

Sophie McGrath began her journey as an oral interpreter and translator of Tibetan in India and Nepal. After studying the traditional Geluk philosophical curriculum in Tibetan nunneries for nine years, she served as a Tibetan-English interpreter for Tibetan scholars teaching in Buddhist programs in the West.
