Geshe Sonam Rinchen has published a new version of Tsongkhapa's short masterpiece "The Three Principal Aspects of the Path" !
“A perfect introduction to Mahayana Buddhist practice! Geshe Sonam Rinchen gives us a concise and authoritative guide to the heart of the bodhisattva path. Replete with vivid teaching stories from traditional Tibet and the tough-love proverbs of the Kadampa masters, the volume also includes a clear edition and translation of Tsong-kha-pa’s 14-verse root text.”—Guy Newland, author of Introduction to Emptiness
This is really great news and I'm sure this will serve alongside Geshe Wangyal's translation via Michael Roach as a great source of liberation.
Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes
"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.
"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

You can get a transcript of Gelek Rimpoche's teachings on this text that is fantastic as well.
The river of continuity is marked by impermanence.
Ceaseless flowing of appearance.
Beautiful and repulsive.
The dance of life and death is a display of the vast expanse.
With gratitude the watcher and the watched pass through the barrier of duality.
