Excellent Path to Enlightenment: oral teachings on the root text of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo
In this book Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche explains a key practice text composed by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo on the Vajrayana preliminaries: taking refuge, generating the thought of achieving enlightenment for the sake of all beings, performing the meditation and recitation of Vajrasattva to remove hindrances on the path to enlightenment, offering the mandala to accumulate merit and wisdom, and developing proper reliance on a spiritual teacher.
Clear, direct and personal, these instructions illuminate the heart of Vajrayana practice. Included here are the Tibetan text as well as the mantras and prayers commonly recited in conjunction with this practice.
