From Here to Enlightenment An Introduction to Tsong-kha-pa’s Classic Text The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment by H.H. the Dalai Lama, edited by Guy Newland


When the Dalai Lama was forced to go into exile in 1959, he could take only a few items with him. Among these cherished belongings was his copy of Tsong-kha-pa’s classic text The Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment. This text distills all of the essential points of Tibetan Buddhism, clearly unfolding the entire Buddhist path to enlightenment.

In 2008, celebrating the long-awaited completion of the English-language translation of The Great Treatise, the Dalai Lama gave a historic six-day teaching at Lehigh University to explain the meaning of this classic text and to underscore its importance. It is the longest teaching that he has ever given to Westerners on just one text, and Westerners have never before had the opportunity to receive such a complete teaching that encompasses the totality of the Buddhist path from the Dalai Lama. From Here to Enlightenment makes the teachings from this momentous event available for a wider audience.

    How wonderful it is to have the opportunity to finally be able to see what is in this text. I have read many articles on the 6 day teaching he did! I am currently reading Reconnecting With Your Soul, I found it online at It is by Susan Christopher who has long been a teacher of Enlightenment. It is a very good read for those who want to get back to connecting with your “God-Self”.
