For almost all of us a sudden spiritual awakening is as unlikely as winning the
Euromillions. But anyone can choose to a gradual transformation, particularly
by following a well-trodden path such as the Buddhist Lam Rim, a collection of
teachings that has been around for centuries and shows how to achieve
renunciation, bodhicitta and wisdom. The author is critical of the way many
modern Western teachers package small parts of ancient wisdom and
promote them with promises of instant results. Instead he introduces some of
the great masters he has studied with, who have themselves studied in great
depth over a length of time. By carefully following the steps set out in the
ornate practices the practitioner begins to experience a complete
psychological workout. In this way, the ancient traditions become relevant to
the modern world without sacrificing depth and slow-paced learning. This is
useful for both experienced and novice students of Tibetan Buddhism.
