A unique presentation of the Buddhist path by Chökyi Dragpa, the foremost Gelug disciple of the famed nineteenth-century Tibetan master Patrul Rinpoche.
Illuminating the Thirty-Seven Practices of a Bodhisattva's quotations and direct instructions from realized sages of the past reinforce one another, subtly penetrating the mind and preparing it for meditation. This book, while fully accessible to newcomers, is especially powerful for serious, established practitioners.
Illuminating the Thirty-Seven Practices of a Bodhisattva was previous published under the title Uniting Wisdom and Compassion.
“Heidi Koppl has emerged as a new and lyrical voice in Dharma translation; Illuminating the Thirty-Seven Practices of a Bodhisattva offers practitioners powerful insights into the path of the bodhisattva.”
– Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence
“Chokyi Dragpa has compiled a wonderful array of sayings from the Kadampa geshes that make this an encyclopedic treasury of Kadampa wisdom. Many translators have difficulty with the archaic Tibetan vocabulary of the early Kadampas, but Heidi Koppl's translation is both extremely careful and very readable. She consulted closely on the translation with several of the leading Tibetan scholars in Nepal over several years, and is an extremely talented translator and scholar in her own right.”
– John Makransky, Associate Professor of Buddhism and Comparative Theology, Boston College
“A fundamental Mahayana teaching, a gold mine of pragmatic instructions and quotes that provide profound food for thought.”
– Matthieu Ricard, co-author of The Monk and the Philosopher
“The Thirty-Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas, composed by the illustrious spiritual master Gyalse Togme, presents profound instructions meant for practical application. The lucid and highly readable commentary by Chokyi Dragpa reveals, with utter clarity, the unity of wisdom and compassion that is at the very heart of the Great Vehicle.”
