A ebook of teachings given in accordance with Atisha’s lineage of rationalization as undergone the Kadampa. There are teachings within the booklet: one on taking shelter within the 3 Jewels and one at the improvement of bodhichitta. either teachings comprise many tales and charges from the early Kadampa masters. the lessons are translated from the accrued Works of the Hermit of Mandong. The hermit used to be a Kagyu grasp who lived in caves within the Mandong sector of Tibet. He lived throughout the latter half the 20 th century after the Communist chinese language invasion and was once rather recognized for with the intention that the neighborhood and intensely impoverished humans got teachings on Buddha dharma that they truly might comprehend and perform. hence, the lessons are very orientated to standard Tibetan brain yet they arrive with an enormous volume of affection and honest crisis for the viewers. This by myself makes them very attention-grabbing. moreover notwithstanding, his instructing here's a very whole instructing on shelter, anything that turns out to get omitted nowadays in Western Buddhism. it's a very fascinating e-book for those reasons.
