Thought the first was perfection. Studid it with my personal awkwardness. Later this second edition put to rest all those obstacles and it was an awakening that embodied all the more extensive texts of Lamrim and Lojong, such as Joyful Path of Good Fortune and Meaningful to Behold. This is a super one for POPULAR modern buddhism with bang up to date modern phrases and it uses a very sort of vernacular but best of English writing style that translates briliantly well into easily understood spoken English. This second edition heads up the latest Kadampa revolution after the authors publishing Modern Buddhism, and followed hot on its heals by the New Heart of Wisdom, which has its oral commentary by Geshe Kelsang in te fall of 2013 International Festival Portugal. Maybe see you there!

Another reason why we do not regard others as precious is that we pay attention to their faults whilst ignoring their good qualities. &quote;

The preliminary practices perform three functions: they purify our mind of negativity, they accumulate merit, good fortune, or positive mental energy, and they help us receive the blessings of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. &quote;
