This book is a guide to Buddhist meditation, composed by the prolific and eclectic Tibetan scholar and practitioner Taranatha.Following the lead of Atisa, Taranatha expounds a graduated approach(known as lam rim) to cognitive and meditative development designed to address the needs of three types of person: the preson of lesser, average and greater capacity.
Taranatha's innovative contribution to this genre is to instruct the student in "Contemplation sessions", that specifically guide a beginning Buddhist practioner through the traditional practices of meditation. The result is a remarkably accessible and concise insider's guide to the Mahayana Buddhist path.
