Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment

Postby kirtu » Thu Dec 16, 2010 5:05 pm

Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment pdf by Atisha translated by Geshe Sonam Rinchen and Ruth Sonam.

This is an overview of the Bodhisattva path sort of as Cliff Notes. There is a Bodhisattva Vow practice given in verses 26-31 that according to the text Manjushri himself made as an ordinary being named Ambaraja. This can be taken as an aspiration toward taking the Bodhisattva Vow from a lama or it can definitely be used to strengthen one's Bodhisattva commitment and Bodhisattva Vow briefly on a daily basis.
