Joyful Path of Good Fortune

The Path to the Supreme Happiness of Enlightenment

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche


"The practice of Lamrim is very important because everyone needs to cultivate peaceful states of mind. By listening to or reading these teachings, we can learn how to control our mind and always keep a good motivation in our heart. This will make all our daily actions pure and meaningful."

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche

We all have the potential for self-transformation, and a limitless capacity for the growth of good qualities. But to fulfil this potential we need to know what to do at every stage of our spiritual journey.

In Joyful Path of Good Fortune we find a clear and comprehensive explanation of the entire path to enlightenment.

With this book, the author Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche offers us step-by-step guidance on the meditation practices that will lead us to lasting inner peace and happiness.

With extraordinary clarity, he presents all Buddha’s teachings in the order in which they are to be practised, enriching his explanation with stories and illuminating analogies.

This book is a perfect guidebook to the Buddhist path.

'This book is the clearest and most essential explanation of the stages of the path.

'It was the first Dharma book I read, and it has provided such a firm foundation for knowledge and experience to grow.

'I really don't know how it would be possible to know what and how to practice without the structure provided by this text!'
