Overview

A pragmatic and down-to-earth introduction to Tibetan Buddhism as practiced in the Nyingma or ancient tradition - the most long-standing tradition of Tibetan Buddhism - presented by two of its most respected and popular teachers, The Khenpo Brothers. More than an introductory teaching, The Buddhist Path additionally offers a rounded approach that includes guidance on how to cultivate intellect and heart so that our true nature can easily manifest, along with clear explanations and methods that reveal how the mind functions and what its essence, our primordial nature, is. The reader is also given invaluable meditation instructions that are relevant for practitioners of all levels, ranging from the generation of calm abiding up through the tantric techniques of visualization and mantra. Students who are seeking a linear presentation of Buddhism will find The Buddhist Path to be especially helpful.
