This quintessential teaching of three principals straight from the bodhisattva Manjushr? via Jey Tsong Khapa is beautifully translated and insightfully elucidated in this little jewel of a book. I hugely enjoyed it and recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who wants to understand the practice the Buddha Dharma. (Robert Thurman, Author of Why the Dalai Lama Matters )
Lama Tsongkhapa's Three Principal Aspects of the Path is an extraordinary condensation of the Buddhist process of awakening. To benefit most from its cryptic content, however, it helps to have an explanation from someone who has a real depth of wisdom and experience. This oral commentary by Geshe Sonam Rinchen is perhaps the most complete, comprehensive and clear explanation I have read. He has brought to bear a huge depth of experience and an extensive knowledge of Buddhist teachings to create a rich and inspiring illumination of the root text. Skilfully translated by Ruth Sonam, this is an invaluable resource for anyone wishing to deepen their understanding of the essential foundations of Tibetan Buddhist psychology and practice. (Rob Preece, author of The Courage to Feel and The Wisdom of Imperfection )
A perfect introduction to Mahayana Buddhist practice! Geshe Sonam Rinchen gives us a concise and authoritative guide to the heart of the bodhisattva path. Replete with vivid teaching stories from traditional Tibet and the tough-love proverbs of the Kadampa masters, the volume also includes a clear edition and translation of Tsong-kha-pa's 14-verse root text. (Guy Newland, author of Introduction to Emptiness )
Sonam has captured the storytelling tone that makes good teachers so popular ('don't listen like a pot which has been turned upside down'). Geshe Rinchen's years of experience teaching Westerners makes the text very accessible without compromising its integrity. His depth of wisdom makes this a valuable book for the seasoned Buddhist as well. (Anna Jedrziewski, New Age Retailer )
