Complete Guide to the Buddhist Path

by Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen, Khenmo Trinlay Chodron (ed.)

When our most meaningful and precious possessions are collected together in a jewel treasury, we cherish it above all other wealth and never tire of looking at it. Like a jewel treasury, this text contains a collection of the most valuable teachings of the Buddha’s teachings, beneficial both for those with a general interest in Buddhism and for serious practitioners. Essential teachings have been gathered together here as pieces of advice for daily life and, especially, for the spiritual journey toward enlightenment. It maps out the essential points of both sutra and tantra from beginning to end, from the four foundations to the perfection of buddhahood.

Buddhist teachings provide numerous ideas and methods for bringing greater meaning and happiness to our lives and to our relations with others. In this book we are introduced to these methods through an intimate advice-style commentary in direct, down to earth language. Drawn from The Jewel Treasury of Advice, a root text written over three hundred years ago by the Buddhist master Drikung Bhande Dharmaradza, Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen Rinpoche interprets these ancient teachings with compassion, strength of mind, warmth, humor, and a keen awareness for their place and need in contemporary Western life. Buddhist teachings are vibrantly and accessibly conveyed from a modern day master.

Those who sincerely want to study and practice Buddhism will find this an indispensable guide that they can read over and over again.

Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen, founder of several Buddhist centers worldwide, is respected and beloved as an accomplished scholar, meditation master, teacher, translator, and author. In 2001, he received the high honor of being enthroned as khenchen (great abbot). He lives in Frederick, Maryland.

Khenmo Trinlay Chödron, an American nun under the tutelage of Khenchen Rinpoche, also lives in Frederick, Maryland.
