Texts on the subject of the graduated path (lam rim), which was introduced to Tibet by Atiśa in his most important work Lamp for the Path of Awakening (Bodhipathapradīpa) and subsequently adopted by all schools of Tibetan Buddhism, especially the Kadam and Gelug.


This short text, Atiśa Dīpaṃkara Śrījñāna's most famous and important work, served to establish lamrim, the 'graduated path', as a genre of Tibetan literature and to introduce the three types of being (skyes bu gsum) as a significant typology. It is included in the Middle Way section of the Tengyur (Toh 3947).

This brief text in twelve stanzas summarizes the paths of the three levels of spiritual capacity—lesser, intermediate and great—from the Lamrim teachings and conveys the so-called Four Dharmas: 1) turning the mind to the Dharma, 2) Dharma progressing along the path, 3) the path clarifying confusion, and 4) confusion dawning as wisdom.

A comprehensive guide to the Mahāyāna path in the Sakya tradition written at the behest of a lama referred to as Kangyurpa.

These verses of advice for renunciant meditators (spong ba bsam gtan pa) cover the entire Buddhist path, from instructions on following a spiritual friend through to the most advanced generation and perfection phase practices.

One of the great Tsongkhapa Lobzang Drakpa's most famous teachings, this short text highlights the importance of renunciation, the motivation of bodhicitta, and the wisdom that realises the nature of things.
