Lam rim chen mo (roughly, ''the great book on stages of the path (to enlightenment'') is the abbreviated title of a massive encyclopedic manual written by Tson-kha-pa, the founder of the Gelugpa sect of Tibetan Buddhism. Calming the Mind and Discerning the Real marks the first appearance in English of the two most important segments of this work. As translator Alex Wayman notes, ''From the beginning of Buddhist literature we find the terms `calming` and `discerning` paired, as natures to be cultivated.'' However, over centuries of religious teaching, the precise connotations of these terms became diffuse, and ''calming'' and ''discerning'' came to stand, at different times, for natures to be cultivated in their own right and for categories covering various steps towards spiritual goals.

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Tuesday 01 August, 2006.
