A Song of Experience (The condensed meaning of lam rim)
By Je Tsongkhapa (1357 – 1419)
Lama Tsongkhapa’s short composition is a powerful exhortation to make the most of our lives. Renouncing the mistaken, temporary pleasures of this life is the first step to paving the way to spiritual realisations that arise from transforming our minds and that lead to ultimate happiness. A Song of Experience is, therefore, part of the lam rim (graduated path to Enlightenment) tradition, which presents a guided roadmap to Enlightenment that we can all follow at our own pace.
