The practice of meditation ultimately leads to full awakening or enlightenment. Along the way meditation produces a variety of experiences and realizations. Further practice gradually enhances and increases these qualities. Once they are increased to their full measure they must be stabilized. The “paths” or “stages” of the path of meditation describe the gradual generation, enhancement and stabilization of the experiences, realizations and qualities that are the result of meditation practice. It is important to be familiar with the characteristics of this gradual development of realization on the five paths in order to correctly and realistically appraise the qualities we possess as well as understand where the path of meditation practice will take us.

In these twelve talks, Rinpoche teaches the stages of the path based on the first Chapter of the Ninth Section of the Treasury of Knowledge by Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye. In order to provide a clear understanding of the paths Rinpoche not only teaches the characteristics of the paths, he also teaches preliminarymeditation practices, including analytical meditation based on materials in the Second Chapter of the Eighth Section of the Treasury of Knowledge. Rinpoche’s teaching is thorough, accessible, profound and delightfully entertaining. Several talks include extensive questions and answers. 12 Talks on 2 MP3 CDs.
  • MP3CD Recordings
    MP3CDs look like ordinary CDs, but contain compressed audio files. While a regular audio CD holds a maximum of only 80 minutes of recorded audio, an identical-looking MP3CD can easily hold the audio files from an entire weekend or even week-long teaching. MP3CDs can be played in a computer and/or the audio files can be downloaded into an iPod or similar device. MP3CDs may also be played on a portable MP3CD player. Most ordinary CD players, such as the CD player in most older cars (roughly 2005 and earlier), will not play MP3CDs. Many but not all cars 2006 or later do have MP3-capable CD players. Any car or home stereo CD player that is capable of playing an MP3CD will have “MP3” or “MP3-WMA” clearly marked on the front of it.
  • The MP3CDs available for sale on this web site are all clearly labeled and packaged in a clear case. The audio files on them have proper ID3 tag information, which means that on a computer, iPod or similar device the audio files will display (and can be searched by) Album (Title of teaching), Song (Talk number within a teaching) and Artist (Teacher).
