I have no doubt that by studying Kongtrul's works readers will be inspired to emulate his great qualities of humility, dedication, patience, and nonsectarianism."—H.H. the Dalai Lama

"The rooftop of the vast edifice of The Treasury of Knowledge is also one of its most important pieces, showing how the entire Buddhist path hangs together. From the level of a beginner via the lofty realms of the bodhisattva levels and the Vajrayana and Dzogchen journeys, the various routes practitioners can travel on their way to buddhahood are mapped out in a clear and comprehensive manner. This volume provides the long-needed road map for enlightenment that puts the various levels of Buddhist practices into perspective within the larger picture."—Karl Brunnhölzl, author of The Center of the Sunlit Sky and Gone Beyond
"One of Tibet's greatest jewels, the polymath and Rime scholar Jamgön Kongtrül, demonstrated his vast erudition in his ten-book Treasury of Knowledge. Tsadra Foundation and Snow Lion are to be congratulated for their commitment to publishing the entirety of this encyclopedic work. This present volume, Journey and Goal, comprises Books Nine and Ten of the Treasury and provides the English reader with a detailed picture of the journey—spiritual transformations leading to resultant states of enlightened expanse. The translator of this volume, Richard Barron, previously translated Kongtrül's autobiography. Here Mr. Barron gives us a precise and detailed account of Mahayana and Vajrayana approaches to transformation. It is destined to become a classic reference for scholars and practitioners alike."—Professor Steven Goodman, California Institute of Integral Studies
"When the opportunity to pore over a systematic and exhaustive study of the grounds and paths on which Buddhist practitioners travel to their various destinations comes along, to seize it unforgivingly may prove transformative in ways that little else can. Richard Barron's translation of this volume makes it possible for an earnest student of the Buddhadharma to look with a steady eye at the extraordinary voyage upon which he or she has embarked."—Jules B. Levinson, translator of Essential Practice
