Summary "In 2008, to commemorate the completion of the English translation of Tsongkhapa's classic text "Great Treatise on the Stages of the Path to Enlightenment" (Tib. Lam Rim Chen Mo), the Dalai Lama gave a six-day teaching on this text at Lehigh University. "From Here to Enlightenment" makes this momentous event available for a wider general readership. The basic topics of Buddhism are woven together for his Western audience. With dependent relatedness as the primary theme of the teachings, the Dalai Lama explores this from various viewpoints throughout the book. True to the Dalai Lama's profound sense of compassion, these fundamental issues of Buddhism are always presented within the context of basic human values and concerns"-- Provided by publisher.
