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.

Each chapter covers one of the philosophical pillars of Buddhism, with a list of questions and answers following the text. It also covers each of the 3 major paths or denominations of Buddhism and includes a section on meditation.

Our local lama recommends this as the first boo

Anyone who wants to start in the Kagyu Tradition of Tibetan Buddhism would greatly benefit from reading this book, the information is clear and when you have finished it, you will have a good idea whats in store for your path in the tradition.

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.

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.
