Editorial Reviews

Review

"I am delighted to know that Khenchen Konchog Gyaltshen has written A Complete Guide to the Buddhist Path. Because it is written in a manner that is easy to understand, it will reach far and wide. This book contains the complete teachings of Buddhism, from the very basic up to the very profound trainings of the Mahayana and Vajrayana systems, including the Six Yogas of Naropa. . . . The practice of all these teachings step-by-step will lead us one day to bear the fruit of complete enlightenment. I therefore thank Khenchen Rinpoche and welcome his light of commentary to illuminate the teachings of our great Lamas making them available to all."—Drikung Kyabgon Chetsang, from the Foreword

"A masterpiece of poetry and a profoundly moving religious instruction . . . [it] indeed encompass[es] the entire path as it is understood in Tibetan Buddhism. . . . The book can be read from start to finish or opened anywhere. The editors have done an excellent job with the book."—Buddhadharma: The Practitioner's Quarterly



"A fresh, intimate, and timely interpretation that will meet the needs of those who want to deepen their practice and understanding of the teachings of the lamas of Tibet. Reading this work is like having a wise, compassionate, and learned teacher at your side one who knows that laughter is an important component of spiritual life. . . . Readers new to Tibetan Buddhism will be aided by the glossary of specialized terms and the descriptions of persons mentioned in the book and will find the annotated bibliography a valuable aid to further study. . . . Th[is] work contains the essence of dharma teachings and goes deep enough to meet the needs of the serious student; it is a highly recommended guide to be kept at one's side and read over and over again."—Spirituality & Health

"A Complete Guide to the Buddhist Path lives up to its title by presenting the methods that Buddhism offers for improving the quality of one's life in plain terms accessible to readers of all backgrounds. . . . Invaluable to anyone seeking to better follow, understand, and practice the Buddha's teachings in everyday life."—Library Bookwatch

This is my second time purchasing the book as I gave the first copy away.

This book, however, strikes a universal chord that makes it a unique and special contribution to Buddhist literature for the western palette.

He is a wonderful teacher, loving and kind yet brings his humor into his teachings.

Format: Paperback
A Complete Guide to the Buddhist Path lives up to its title by presenting the methods that Buddhism offers for improving the quality of one's life in plain terms accessible to readers of all backgrounds. Constructed around the core of "The Jewel Treasury of Advice", a classic Buddhist text created by Drikung Bhande Dharmaradza (1704-1754), A Complete History of the Buddhist path is invaluable to any seeking to better follow, understand, and practice the Buddha's teachings in everyday life. Highly recommended.

I got the text for this book that Kenchen translated years ago,when I was first exploring Buddhism. I loved it so much that I memorized the 103 core verses. This books expands and speaks to us in the terms that Westerners can 'grok'. Khenchen has a great ability to speak to us as he came to the West in the mid 80s, and his understanding and English is excellent.
