About the Book

Volume Two of this collection expands on Volume One with a series of longer, in-depth teachings by Khenchen Appey Rinpoche on five essential subjects: 1) a commentary to inspire faith, based on verses in praise of the Buddha’s immeasurable qualities from Sakya Pandita’s Clarifying the Sages Intent; 2) oral instructions based on Candrakirti's Entering the Middle Way, offering a practical understanding of the Mahayana path as a whole; 3) a commentary on the first three chapters of Santideva's The Way of the Bodhisattva, which includes an explanation of the ritual for the bodhicitta vow; 4) a rarely given explanation of Gorampa's profound teaching on dependent arising according to the four philosophical schools of Indian Buddhism, entitled Illumination of Samsara and Nirvana; and 5) a detailed commentary on Samantabhadra’s Noble Astirations to Sublime Conduct, as the supreme means of dedication.
