This book is an introduction to Tibetan Buddhism written by the head of the Karma Kagyu lineage in the Americas, Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche. It assumes no prior knowledge so a good introduction to those interested in Buddhism.

Our local lama recommends this as the first boo

This book was very helpful and gave a very useful overview of the path. I was even able to tell where I am on that path.

Really great, especially if you're a relative beginner like me. Gives you a good base for further study.

Great guide to the Sutra system of Buddhist practice. I like this book because it is very specific about the steps or stages to Calm Abiding (Tranquility) meditation.
