In this unique compendium of teachings, Shabkar Tsogdruk Rangdrol provides practical yet profound directives that cover the entire Tibetan Buddhist path to enlightenment, with pithy instructions regarding the graded stages of the path (lam-rim); the practice of calm abiding and special insight; bodhichitta; the bodhisattva vow; and study of the six perfections, Mahamudra, and Dzogchen. Through twenty-three pieces of advice, Shabkar takes the essentials of Tibetan Buddhist spiritual practice (based on Je Tsongkhapa’s Great Graded Path, or lam rim chen mo) and presents them in the form of questions and answers, alternating verse and prose, to give a deep-rooted and concise set of instructions.
