About the book

In this practical guide to the Buddhist path, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche gives a special presentation of the essential practices of Buddha's teachings of both Sutra and Tantra. Based on his deep experience gained from a lifetime spent in meditation, and inspired by the unsurpassed teachings of Je Tsongkhapa and the oral instructions of the Ganden Emanation Scripture, the author gives personal advice from his heart on how to make our human life meaningful, to learn how to be happy all the time and to solve our daily problems of anger, uncontrolled desire, ignorance and so forth.

Using a mirror we can improve our physical qualities, and using the mirror of Dharma we can improve our inner qualities by developing cherishing love for all living beings, compassion for all living beings and loving kindness for everyone until we attain the ultimate good quality of enlightenment.
