Tibetan publishing house Olmo Ling Publications announces the release of 'Journey into Buddhahood: The Five Paths and Ten Stages of Compassionate Beings' by Tibetan Bon lama Tempa Dukte Lama at the beginning of September. This book is a guide to the entire spiritual journey from the initial arising of the mind of awakening to the attaining of complete Buddhahood. In this book, Tempa Lama explains the Five Paths and Ten Stages (Bhumis) of Compassionate Beings and the practices at each stage in a very accessible way, drawing upon examples and stories that reflect the daily life of practitioners in the West. The book also features an introduction by H.E. Menri Lopon, the head teacher of Menri Monastery (the main monastery of Bon).
Tempa Lama will visit NY city on Sept 18 to give a free public talk on 'Journey into Buddhahood'. More information is below and I have attached the flier.

The Journey into Buddhahood is the practice of attaining complete awakening. Whether we experience happiness or suffering depends on the way we perceive reality. The basis of our experience is the mind. This recognition motivates us to look for a path that not only offers temporary respite from suffering, but that enables us to completely free ourselves and all beings. When we first have this thought of helping all beings without distinction, we enter the Journey into Buddhahood.
