Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche presents a detailed commentary on Gampopa's text of the sutra path to enlightenment, a primary Kagyu text.
From the Foreword by H.H. Karmapa:
Our lineage is that of the incomparable protector of living beings, Sonam Rinchen, the founder of the teachings of the incomparable Dakpo Kagyu and a noble being predicted by the Buddha. From the ocean-like oral instructions, which give loving advice to disciples who are suitable vessels, there are The Precious Garland of the Supreme Path, the heart of the core teachings, and the Ornament of Precious Liberation. Here are presented talks on the second text, given during almost four months by the unequaled spiritual friend, Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche, to Dharma students in Scotland so that they might attain full awakening.
These talks are especially wonderful in presenting the teachings so that they are easily understood and their meaning realized. I rejoice in the publication of this volume by Venerable Choje Lama Shedrup Chokyi Senge and others who have helped. It is said that if one practices the profound Dharma given here, now and in the future, one will become truly joyful.
