"A comprehensive, accesible, straightforward guide on how to meditate on each step of the path." - Tricycle
Pabongka Rinpoche was one the twentieth century's most charismatic and revered Tibetan lamas, and in Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand we can see why. In this famous twenty-four-day teaching on the lamrim, or stages of the path, Pabongka Rinpoche weaves together lively stories and quotations with frank observations and practical advice to move readers step by step along the journey to buddhahood. When his student Trijang Rinpoche first edited and published these teachings in Tibetan, an instant classic was born. The flavor and immediacy of the original Tibetan are preserved in Michael Richards' fluid and lively translation, which is now substantially revised in this new edition.
"The richest and most enjoyable volume from the lamrim tradition published to date." - Golden Drum
Pabongka Rinpoche (1878-1941) received his Geshe degree at Sera Monastic University in Lhasa. He was the root lama of both tutors of the present Dalai Lama and profoundly influenced many of the Gelung lamas who have been instrumental in bringing the Dharma to the West.
Trijang Rinpoche (1901-1981) was Pabongka Rinpoche's foremost student and one of the Dalai Lama's two main tutors.
Michael Richards (1950- ) translated this work in conjuction with several Tibetan lamas while residing in Dharamsala, India. He now lives with his family in Sydney, Australia.
