Starting the path to enlightenment, 5 April 2006
This book is very good if (in this life) you are starting your journey to enlightenment, it offers real guidance, especially in the way it's been laid out, begining with the basic premisses of morality and perception, leading on to meditation, and later discusing wisdom and teaching. The Dalia Lama introduces steps one can implement before a buddhisttva can give personal guidance. I don,t have a personal teacher as yet, so find this book exceptionally helpful.
