Pabongka Rinpoche was one the twentieth century's most charismatic
and revered Tibetan lamas, and in Liberation in the Palm of Your
Hand we can see why. In this famous twenty-four-day teaching on
the lamrim, or stages of the path, Pabongka Rinpoche weaves
together lively stories and quotations with frank observations and
practical advice to move readers step by step along the journey to
buddhahood. When his student Trijang Rinpoche first edited and
published these teachings in Tibetan, an instant classic was born.
The flavor and immediacy of the original Tibetan are preserved in
Michael Richards' fluid and lively translation, which is now
substantially revised in this new edition.
