The poem ‘Letter to a Friend’ has been composed by the great Buddhist master Nagarjuna (1st – 2nd century A.D.) as a piece of advice to a South Indian king and remains today one of the most important texts for the reader interested in a clear and comprehensive exposition of the whole Mahayana path. Combining a theoretical step-by-step presentation of the stages of the path with a very pragmatic application to everyday life, it is meant to guide those who wish to deepen their spiritual practice while continuing to live and work in society.
Patrul Rinpoche presents and comments this text in a profound yet very accessible way, thus addressing students already familiarised with the Dharma as well as readers at the beginning of the Buddhist path.
The teaching was recorded during the 2015 General Buddhist Philosophy and Meditation Course in Dharma City.
