The Essence of Nectar
98 pages. List price $ 8.95

A translation of an extensive Lamrim prayer by Yeshe Ts÷ndru, a nineteenth-century Gelukpa lama from the Kongpo House of Sera Mey College. The Lamrim teaching tradition was introduced into Tibet in the 11th century by the Indian pandit Dipamkara Shrij˝ana, known more popularly as Jowo Je or Lord Atisha. The instruction presents the entire Mahayana path to enlightenment in a series of graded practices. The original Tibetan poem, rendered into English in free verse, presents the complete range of Lamrim topics in a style that focuses on how to put the the teachings into practice. The poem is supplemented witih explanations by Sermey Khensur Lobsang Tharchin. (See Preparing for Tantra for another Lamrim prayer with commentary.)
