Songs of Spiritual Experience
"I, a yogi, have practiced in this manner;
You, who aspire for liberation, too should do likewise."
With these words, Lama Tsongkhapa concludes each point of the path to enlightment that he lays out in the beautiful text Songs of Spiritual Experience. This text touches on all the essential points of the Lamrim, from devotion to our spiritual mentor through understanding impermanence, karma, renunciation and so on up to developing single-pointed concentration and generating the wisdom that perceives emptiness.
On Wednesdays, Geshe Gelek will teach from Songs of Spiritual Experience, a condensed version of the Lamrim in 45 stanzas. Download the text here.
(Coincidentally, there is a book in our bookstore with the same title, a lovely book, but it is not a commentary on this text.)
