“Geshe Yeshe Tobden has that rare distinction not only of being qualified as a scholar but also of having spent many years in meditation in the mountains. As a result, his explanation has the special flavor of heartfelt personal experience.”—His Holiness the Dalai Lama

“Geshe Yeshe Tobden has not only mastered the subjects of philosophy, logic, wisdom, metaphysics, and discipline, his presentation shows that he also has experiential understanding. His combination of knowledge and experience is greatly needed today.”—Gelek Rimpoche, author of Good Life, Good Death

“…this outstanding volume provides a Mahayana road map for self-cultivation, adhering closely to Shantideva’s chapters yet drawing deeply from Geshe Tobden’s own profound training and experiences.”—Buddhadharma
