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.
