Definitive in its scope, the ten-volume Treasury of Knowledge stands alone as an encyclopedic masterpiece encompassing the entire range of Tibetan Buddhist teachings. Written by Jamgon Kongtrul, whose writings have been embraced by the four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism, the set is a vast and inclusive treasure trove of material. This volume, Journey and Goal, focuses on the spiritual path-- the journey and the resultant state of enlightenment where it leads--the goal. Extensively varied perspectives are offered, not only from the different schools of Buddhism, but also from the varying levels of practice and attainments. In fact, this is the most comprehensive treatment of these themes to appear in the English language, and as with all of the books in The Treasury of Knowledge, is the first translation into a Western language.
