In this book the Dalai Lama explains in brief but lucid detail every aspect of the Tibetan Buddhist path to enlightenment. The book consists of three parts: a general introduction and overview of basic theories and practices; a commentary on selected readings from Shantideva's Bodhicaryavatara; and a discussion of Vajrayana and the path of tantra. These teachings are taken from a series of lectures given in London in 1988. Included are teachings on the three turnings of the wheel of dharma - the Four Noble Truths, the second turning on the doctrine of emptiness, and the third on Buddha nature, as well as the customary question and answer sesions.

With characteristic humility, His Holiness begins this landmark survey of the entire Buddhist path saying, "I think an overview of Tibetan Buddhism for the purpose of providing a comprehensive framework of the Buddhist path may prove helpful in deepening your understanding and practice."
