This three-volume set presents the collected works of one of the great luminaries of Tibetan Buddhism in our time, published to mark his centennial celebration. A complete exposition of the stages of the Buddhist path is presented through Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche's commentaries on the root texts of classic Tibetan masters including Patrul Rinpoche, Jigme Lingpa, Shechen Gyaltsab, and Mipham Rinpoche. Originally given orally to Western students, the texts afford a rare glimpse into the direct transmissions of a master teacher. Moreover, several of the texts have never been published before.
Volume two of this collection explores fundamental practices of Vajrayana Buddhism and teachings of both sutra and tantra. It includes a manual for the fundamental practice of ngöndro; a pithy commentary on body, speech, and mind; instructions for guru yoga; and practical guidance on using everyday circumstances on the path to buddhahood.
Volume Two Contents: The Excellent Path to Enlightenment, The Wheel of Investigation, The Wish-Fulfilling Jewel, The Heart Treasure of the Enlightened Ones, The Hundred Verses of Advice
