The text the “Three Principle Aspects of the Path” was a text composed by Lama Tsongkhapa, which contains the essence of the Buddhist path. These three aspects being renunciation, bodhichitta, and emptiness.

Lama Yeshe gives an introduction into these essential points in a clear, direct manner that is engaging and understandable for a wide audience. Lama Yeshe introduces the text by saying:

In Tibetan, we call this text Lam-tso nam-sum. Historically, this book derives from Lama Je Tsong Khapa’s direct, visual communication with Lord Manjushri. Manjushri gave him this teaching and then Lama Je Tsong Khapa gave it to his disciples: Lam-tso nam-sum, the Three Principal Aspects. This is a small text, but it contains the essence of the entire teaching of Lord Buddha. Also, while it is very simple and practical, it is a universal teaching that everybody can understand.
