Modern Buddhism: The Path of Compassion and Wisdom - Volume 1 Sutra by Kelsang Gyatso
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a good overview and practical manual for learning to walk the Buddhist path. It's similar to The Words of My Perfect Teacher: A Complete Translation of a Classic Introduction to Tibetan Buddhism (Sacred Literature Trust Series)
, but this has more actual examples of meditations to use in daily practice.
(It is Volume 1 of 3, all of which were free on Amazon.com at the time I got my copy.)
If you are even a little interested in Buddhism in general, and/or Tibetan Buddhism in particular (esp. as it has evolved in our time and in the "West"), this is an excellent place to start.
It covers several levels, which I have only found similarly in the Dalai Lama's Becoming Enlightened
. Here they are laid out in a way that was more clear to me.
