"A more succinct and beautiful expression of the Buddhist path, or a more haunting exhortation to practice, you're not likely to find. Keep this slim volume nearby and read it often."—Shambhala Sun
"A soul-stretching collection of essential teachings on what matters most in this tradition. . . . For centuries the Tibetans have explored a path of wisdom that illuminates every corner of life. The material in this volume opens doors to that spiritual perspective on everyday life."—Spirituality & Health
"An extraordinary treasure: a moving and deeply transforming teaching by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, one of the greatest masters of our time."—Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying
"Were we to take these verses to heart, our relationships would be transformed, our minds would be at ease, and we would no longer be afraid of death; our lives would be seamlessly devoted to our own freedom and to the well-being of others."—Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Faith
"These sublime teachings of the great twelfth-century Indian master Padampa, educated by Khyentse Rinpoche, are among the greatest Eastern treasures ever to appear in the West."—Tulku Thondup, author of The Healing Power of Mind
"In this simple, elegant book, in the eloquent speech of everyday life, the veils of illusion are torn away, revealing pain and pleasure, life and death, as unceasing displays of wisdom and continual opportunities for our own liberation."—Reginald A. Ray, author of Indestructible Truth

This commentary on Padampa Sangye's classic verses of advise to Tibetan villagers of Tingri—by renowned and beloved meditation master Dilgo Khyentse—offers guidance for people trying to lead a dharmic life in the workaday world. These hundred verses, studied for centuries by Tibetans and students of Buddhism, contain a complete survey of the Tibetan Buddhist path. Dilgo Khyentse's lively explication of each stanza brings to light subtleties and amplifies the richness of the words and their pertinence to our lives. These two venerable teachers advise us in relating to everyday difficulties such as loneliness, craving, family squabbles, competition in business, disagreements with neighbors, and betrayal by friends—as challenging to us as they have been to meditators for centuries.
