Abstract: How can we use every moment to progress toward enlightenment? Those with profound experience of that path have distilled their advice into powerful, seedlike instructions that get to the heart of the matter. Matthieu Ricard has selected and translated some of the most refreshing and clearest of these, drawing from all eight traditions of Tibetan Buddhism. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche inspired Ricard to create this anthology by telling him that "when we come to appreciate the depth of the view of the eight great traditions and also see that they all lead to the same goal without contraditctin geach other, we think, 'Only ignorace can lead us to adopt a sectarian view.'"
