“A goldmine of pragmatic instructions and quotes that provide profound food for thought.”—Matthieu Ricard, co-author of The Monk and the Philosopher


Chökyi Dragpa Heidi I. Koppl Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche

Illuminating the Thirty-Seven Practices of a Bodhisattva is a unique presentation of the Buddhist path by Chökyi Dragpa, the foremost Gelug disciple of the famed nineteenth-century Tibetan master Patrul Rinpoche. Its quotations and direct instructions from realized sages of the past reinforce one another, subtly penetrating the mind and preparing it for meditation. This book, while fully accessible to newcomers, is especially powerful for serious, established practitioners.

This book was previously published under the title Uniting Wisdom and Compassion.
