The Excellent Path To Enlightenment
Longchen Rabjam Drime Oser
Khenpo Gawang Rinpoche, Gerry Wiener
Longchenpa (1308-1364) is the main Tibetan lineage holder of the Nyingma Dzogchen teachings and is the author of many texts including the well known “The Seven Treasures.”
“The Excellent Path to Enlightenment” consists of one hundred and forty one separate practices that can be performed on a daily basis. It is a complete practice manual that contains the essential points of the entire Buddhist teachings.
The initial ninety two practices are associated with the Sutrayana teachings and the remaining practices are divided among the different yanas of the Vajrayana teachings. The book organizes these points in a special way in accordance with the view of Dzogchen, the pinnacle view of Buddhism.
The Vajrayana sections are days 93-141. To read and practice the full 141 days of “The Excellent Path to Enlightenment” it is required that you have permission, given by a qualified Vajrayana master, to engage in the Vajrayana Buddhist path. It would be best, and is recommended, to have a reading transmission (Lung) and practice instructions for this text.
If you do not meet the requirements then the Sutrayana portion of this text named, "The Excellent Path to Enlightenment - Sutrayana" can be ordered through Amazon and other book outlets.
