Words of Wisdom & Compassion

Daily quote from the collected works of Venerable Geshe-la

The practice of the stages of the path to liberation can be condensed into the three higher trainings of higher moral discipline, higher concentration and higher wisdom. These trainings are called 'higher' because they are motivated by renunciation. They are therefore the actual path to liberation that we need to practise.

Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche,
