The Three Levels of Spiritual Perception is a guide to the main system of meditation in the Sakya tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Written by one of the first Tibetan masters to live and teach in the United States, this modern classic entertains, inspires, and motivates readers as it leads them along the entire path to enlightenment. This book clearly and movingly explains the Lamdre (Path with Its Result) system of meditation, which has been unique to the Sakya tradition for almost nine centuries. According to the Lamdre teachings, there are three main stages, or "levels of perception," on the spiritual path: the perception of ordinary beings, the vision experienced by those who have begun meditation practice, and the pure vision of those who have attained enlightenment. These three levels are ultimately shown to be inseparable. This new edition of The Three Levels of Spiritual Pereception has been revised to make the language and meaning even more clear.
Wherever you may be on the path, you will find in this book welcome instructions and motivation for taking the next step.
