Approaching the Buddhist Path
A public talk with Venerable Thubten Chodron
Traditional presentations of the path to awakening in Tibetan Buddhism assume the audience already has faith in the Buddha and believes in rebirth and karma. However, His Holiness the Dalai Lama realized early on that Western students need a different approach. Venerable Thubten Chodron shares His Holiness’ wisdom from Approaching the Buddhist Path, the first volume in a multi-volume collection of the Dalai Lama’s definitive teachings on the path that she is coauthoring with him. Starting from the universal human wish for happiness and the dynamic nature of the mind, they provide a framework for the modern student to make sense of this rich tradition.
