I have been reading The Bliss of Inner Fire: Heart Practice of the Six Yogas of Naropa By Thubten Yeshe, Robina Courtin, Ailsa Cameron.

It is Lama Yeshe's teachings based on Lama Tsongkhapa's Having The Three Convictions.

I am wondering if anyone knows where there might be a direct translation of Lama Tsongkhapa's text?

Thanks very much,
Jeff

The direct translation called by Mullin the Three Inspirations is what you want:

These other Geluk commentaries are very helpful too: Readings on the Six Yogas of Naropa

Hi Jeff,

I doubt that there is a complete English translation of "Having the Three Convictions" by Tsongkhapa available, but I don't know for sure.

Lotsawa House is an organization which does a lot of translations from Tibetan into English. They have a facebook page. Perhaps they could give you more info.

Are you practicing under the guidance of a Lama? If not, then reading the details of all this stuff may not be so helpful over the long run. Tsongkhapa's other teachings are great as well.

Wonderful! Thank you so much.

I am a student of Lama Zopa Rinpoche. While I do get in sometimes over my head when I read direct translations (rather than commentary) I like to try.
