Synopsis:
When the Dalai Lama was forced to go into exile in 1959 he could only take a few items with him. Among these cherished belongings was his copy of Lama Tsong Khapa's classic text, Lam rim Chenmo, or Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment. This text distills all of the essential points of Tibetan Buddhism, clearly unfolding the entire Buddhist path to enlightenment. In 2008, celebrating the long awaited completion of the full English translation of Lam rim Chenmo, the Dalai Lama gave an historic six day teaching at Lehigh University, USA to explain the meaning of this great text to Westerners. In fact, underscoring its importance, it is the longest teaching that he has ever given to Westerners on just one text. Conversely, Westerners had never before had the opportunity to receive such a complete teaching that encompasses the totality of the Buddhist path from the Dalai Lama. From Here to Enlightenment makes this momentous event available for a wider general readership.

"Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path is one of the great classics of world spirituality. An encyclopedic work, it guides the reader from the contemplations of the novice to the most sublime meditations of the expert. The greatest living heir to the intellectual and spiritual legacy of Tsong Khapa, no one is better equipped to introduce readers to the Great Treatise than His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Deeply profound, and yet interspersed with the Dalai Lama's characteristic wit and humour, this book brings Tsong Khapa's book to life.Six hundred years may have elapsed since the writing of the Great Treatise, but the Dalai Lama shows how very relevant Tsong Khapa's thought is even in the twenty-first century." Jose Cabezon.

"Presents the first ever complete exposition by the Dalai Lama in the West of the great Tibetan classic Tsong Khapa's Great Treatise on the Path to Enlightenment. In producing this volume, Guy Newland has undertaken a fresh translation of the Dalai Lama's teachings with care, diligence, and insight, resulting in a rare work in English on Tibetan Buddhism that is lucid, engaging, and a real joy to read. I recommend anyone interested in engaging with Tsong Khapa's great classic to first read From Here to Enlightenment." Geshe Thubten Jinpa.

"Among the Dalai Lama's many pedagogical skills, one of the most impressive is his ability to provide compelling commentary on the classical treatises of Indian and Tibetan Buddhism. Among Tibetan treatises, there is none more famous than Tsong Khapa's Lam Rim Chen Mo. Here, in ways that are at once accessible, insightful and illuminating, His Holiness sets forth a text that he has studied since he was a child in the Potala, a text he knows like no other." Donald Lopez.
