Thsi book teaches how to develop compassion, wisdom and spiritual strength and to overcome obstacles and difficulties on por spiritual path. It presents two essential practices revealed by Manjushri, the wisdom Buddha. The first is a special guru yoga in which we visualize our spiritual guide as Je tsongkhapa, who himself is an emanation of Manjushri. In this way we shall naturally accomplish the realizations of the path of Sutra and Tantra and we shall attain a special Dharma wisdom. The second practice is a method for relying upon the Dharma protector. Through this pracitce we can overcome obstacles and create favourable conditions to nurture and increase our Dharma realizations. These two practices are the essential practices of the new Kadampa tradition of Mahayana Buddhism. They are included in this book and by practising them we shall make our human life meaningful and reap a harvest of pure Dharma realixations.
