Geshe Sopa's Work

Post by dolphin_color » Mon Apr 08, 2019 6:20 am

I'm wondering if anyone has had a chance to read Geshe Sopa's Steps on the Path to Enlightenment: A Commentary on Tsongkhapa's Lamrim Chenmo. I'd like to use it to help me understand the Lamrim Chenmo, in addition to some of the other texts that are often suggested here. Does anyone have any feedback on it?

I am currently reading these texts at the instruction of my Guru. I have read and received teachings on a fair amount of the Lam Rim literature and Geshe Sopa's is excellent and is quite extensive in explanation. This is a great text at any level of practice. The only downside is it is one of the longest :tongue: .

There are 5 Volumes, right? I have read Vol. 1-3 a few years ago. Very detailed, good explanations and even better for deep study than the original. That's actually the main drawback if one seeks a more quick overview on the path... but then even the original may be too elaborate.
