How to Transform Your Life

A Blissful Journey

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche


‘Everybody needs to be good-natured with a good heart, because in this way we can solve our own problems as well as those of others, and we can make our human life meaningful.‘
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

What does it mean to transform our life?

At the beginning of this remarkable book, the author Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, says:

‘Through practising the instructions presented in this book we can transform our life from a state of misery into one of pure and everlasting happiness.’

How amazing to know that such a transformation is possible!

And how even more amazing to know that the method to accomplish this transformation is to follow the instructions in this book, which the author calls ‘scientific methods to improve our human nature.’

This book is a practical manual for daily life. It shows how we can develop and maintain inner peace, how we can reduce and stop our experience of problems, and how we can bring about positive changes in our life that will enable us to experience deep and lasting happiness.

For those keen to learn about modern Kadampa Buddhism and how to apply its teachings to daily life, this is the book to start with - and to share with others.
