Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand
A Concise Discourse on the Path to Enlightenment by Pabongka Rinpoche
On September 17, 2006 the Indiana Buddhist Center began a new teaching with our precious teacher Geshe Jinpa Sonam. We are studyingLiberation in the Palm of Your Hand: A Concise Discourse on the Path to Enlightenment by Pabongka Rinpoche.
From the back cover: "Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand is the complete translation of Pabongka Rinpoche's famous twenty-four day teaching, given in 1921, on the stages of the path to enlightenment. Pabongka Rinpoche intersperses lively anecdotes, examples, and quotations from the scriptures with stories from his own and other contemporary lamas' practice, creating an easily accessible guide to meditating on each step of the path, knowing what results to expect, and assessing one's progress. Originally edited in Tibetan by Trijang Rinpoche, tutor to the Fourteenth Dalai Lama, Liberation was immediately recognized as an indispensable guide to the study and practice of the Buddha's teachings. Michael Richards's English translation effectively captures the force, flavor, and immediacy of the original Tibetan. Liberation is a reference treasure for a lifetime's practice."
