A Commentary on the Lamrim Chenmo

“The Lamrim Chenmo is one of the great classics of Tibetan literature. This contemporary commentary by an erudite, younger scholar of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition brings Tsong kha pa's work to life. Readable, accessible and to the point, Yangsi Rinpoche's book eloquently shows us the relevance of the lam rim to our day-to-day lives. To resort to a Tibetan image, it brings this great classical tradition ‘into the very palms of our hands.’”—Jose Ignacio Cabezon, XIVth Dalai Lama Professor of Tibetan Buddhism and Cultural Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara

Students newer to the endeavor will receive a wonderful education from reliable guides. All of us will find our attention focused upon matters of importance.”—Buddhadharma: The Practitioners' Quarterly, in a joint review of two of Wisdom's books on the lamrim
