Based on Lama Tsong Khapa’s text “Having the Three Convictions”, this book is a commentary on the renowned Six Yogas of Naropa. Lama Yeshe concentrates mainly on the practice of inner fire, or tumo, the first of the six yogas and a foundation stone of the Buddhist path to enlightenment. Mastery of inner fire quickly brings the mind to its most refined and penetrating state – the experience of clear light, an extraordinary powerful state of mind that is unequaled in its ability to directly realize ultimate reality. Lama Yeshe’s aim was for his students to actually taste the experience of inner fire rather than gain an intellectual understanding.
