From the back of the Book
The Buddha of Wisdom spoke to Tsongkapa, and said:
"you must come to see that the Lama is one and the same
with your high secret Angel, and pray to them-never stop
praying, and then the seed which I have planted in you this
day will flower, and you will understand all"
The Tibetan Buddhist master Tsongkapa was born over six centuries ago. He was perhaps the greatest commentator of Buddhism in history, and wrote more than 10,000 pages in explanation of the ancient books of Buddhist wisdom.
His most famous master piece of the Great Book on the step of the path, the Lamrim Chenmo, a clear and detailed roadmap to Enlightenment. He wrote the work after coming in and out of prophetic vision over the length of an entire month, at the great monastery of Radreng, in south Tibet. The vision was triggered by the Mountain of Blessings, a prayer and guide to perfection used by Lamas ever since, as a preparation for the secret teachings of Buddhism.
This important work appears here in full with a commentary by the illustrious Pabongka Rinpoche (1878 - 1941), generally regarded as the foremost Tibetan Buddhist teacher of the last century. Both texts have been translated by Khen Rinpoche, Geshe Lobsang Tharchinone - one of the last great master of old Tibet, and a former abbot of Sera Mey Tibetan Monastery, one of the largest Buddhist monasteries in the world.
The cover shows an image of Tara;
She is a female Buddha
Whose name means
"The Woman who Leads you to Liberation".
