Description
 
This book presents, with intimate detail of the oral tradition, the main practices of the Mahayana Buddhist path. It details the attitudes cultivated in mediation - ranging from turning away from cyclic existence, to developing love and compassion for all beings, to the profound view of emptiness.
Kensur Lekden was the Abbot of the Tantric College of Lower Lhasa prior to the Chinese invasion. Renowned among the Tibetans as a great lecturer on varied topics, in this work he highlights the incisive and direct approach of mind transformation that runs contrary to the ordinary worldly perspective. A scholar who knew the meaning of applying the great teachings as precepts for practical application, Kensur Lekden, embodied the total involvement of the mind as per "Mahayana."
Of particular interest is his explanation of the compatibility of emptiness and dependent - arising, showing that realization of emptiness opens the way for understanding the true nature of things, both ultimate and conventional. His blend of compassion and wisdom is most striking.
