OUT OF PRINTFor Buddhists, enlightenment is not some vague esoteric idea but a precise goal, definable and, most important of all, attainable. Success in the achievement of enlightenment, like success in any venture, depends upon following the steps laid out by those who have already attained it.
The Essential Nature is an explanation of these steps - known in Tibetan as the graduated path to enlightenment (lam rim) - by the contemporary Tibetan master Geshe Rabten, based on a popular Tibetan text, The Essential Nectar of the Holy Doctrine by the eighteenth-century scholar Yeshe Tsondru.
These traditional teachings are presented here as meditations to be practiced; they are methods for investigating and transforming one's attitudes and behaviour, leading finally to the complete eradication of all negative states of mind and the development of all positive qualities - in other words, enlightenment.
