In honor of His Holiness’s, the 14th Dalai Lama, birthday (July 6) as well as the birthday of our late reincarnated founder, Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen, now Tulku Tenzin Thardoe, we are happy to announce the posting of two e-books now available on our GSTDL website: Illuminating the Path and Mirror of Wisdom

Illuminating the Path is a combination of two Lam-Rim teachings given by His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama during his visit to Los Angeles in June 2000, Atisha’s Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment and Lama Tsong Khapa’s Lines of Experience. 

Mirror of Wisdom is a commentary of two texts, Mind Training Like The Rays of The Sun and The Heart Sutra given by our late founder, Geshe Tsultim Gyeltsen.  The Heart Sutra teachings began in May 1994 while (GS)TDL was located in West Los Angeles.  The emptiness section of Mind Training Like The Rays of The Sun was given in September 1996, which by then, the center had moved to its current Long Beach location. 

These out-of-print books were produced by Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive for (Gaden Shartse) Thubten Dhargye Ling Publications.  We encourage you to read these profound teachings for your personal practice.  You can download them for free. We do highly suggest, however, a donation to Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archives to support them for their continuous work in providing and archiving Dharma teachings from many great masters. You can also support GSTDL’s Archive Project which helps us digitize the works of our late founder as well as other great masters that have gone through our doors.
