In Gates to Buddhist Practice, His Eminence Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche presents the traditional wisdom of the Vajrayana path. Since its original publication, Rinpoche continued to teach widely and address the questions of sincere students grappling with the many challenges, concerns, and even skepticism encountered in genuine spiritual practice. These questions, as well as Rinpoche’s incisive responses, form the basis of the material added to this revised edition. Rinpoche provides insight into formal meditation practice and demonstrates how spiritual truths can be of immediate help in our daily lives. Thus new readers will benefit from other students’ efforts to clarify their understanding with an authentic spiritual teacher.
H. E. Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche (1930–2002) was a highly revered Tibetan meditation master, artist, and healer who taught extensively in the East and West. His other books are Life in Relation to Death and Lord of the Dance, his autobiography. His Bodhisattva Peace Training teachings can be found in Change of Heart, compiled and edited by Lama Shenpen Drolma.
