This long-awaited magnum opus by a pre-eminent scholar and teacher will appeal to Western
students of Tibetan Buddhism, especially those engaged in the preliminary practices, or
ngn00640072o, that are the foundation of the tradition. It contains commentaries on two
basic texts studied and practiced by thousands of English-speaking Buddhists. While written
in traditional style, it is informed by the author’s understanding of the concerns of
Western Buddhist practitioners, and will be of interest even to readers who are not
practicing the ngn00640072o.
