About the Author

Khenchen Thrangu was born in Tibet in 1933. He has founded numerous monasteries and nunneries, schools for Tibetan children, and medical clinics. He has taught extensively throughout Europe, Asia, and the United States, and is the abbot of Gampo Abbey. He was appointed by the Dalai Lama to be the personal tutor for the Seventeenth Karmapa.


"Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche has a unique ability to bring forth the central issues of a text and make them available to a contemporary audience. . . . This text will certainly bring great benefit to all those who encounter it."--The Seventeenth Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje

"In presenting the very first meditation instruction crafted for Tibetans by the master Kamalashila, Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche distills the wisdom of India in an intimate personal instruction as true for the contemporary western practitioner as it was in eighth-century Tibet. This text is a must for every serious Buddhist meditator."--Judith Simmer-Brown, Professor of Buddhist Studies, Naropa University "A remarkably clear, accessible, and informative explanation of one of Tibet's most valued meditation texts. Thrangu Rinpoche reveals here his faultless integration of masterful scholarship and profound practice mind, leading us gracefully and surely through the terrain of these Middle Way practice instructions. A delight to scholar and practitioner alike."--Reggie Ray, author "Centuries ago the Indian master Kamalashila taught Tibetans the essential points of Mahayana practice in a clear, step-by-step, easy-to-follow way. Now the great scholar and meditation master Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche makes these profound teachings readily accessible to Western students. I encourage all those interested in beginning or deepening their practice of the Mahayana path of wisdom and compassion, which leads to the highest enlightenment for the benefit of all beings, to read this book."--Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche "Essential Practice is confidently recommended as a welcome and invaluable addition to Tibetan Buddhist Studies reading lists and reference shelves."--Library Bookwatch
