April 28, 2011 - PRLog -- Spring has arrived, and so has the new book by award winning author B. Simhananda, entitled “The Great Golden Garland of Gampopa’s Sublime Considerations on the Supreme Path”, Volume 2.
This book is an essential guide on the path to ‘self transformation’. The author invites the reader to explore one’s inherent potential, through an exceptional and groundbreaking study of Gampopa’s famous 12th century Buddhist classical works. Let your mind be inspired through this impeccably written masterpiece.  
Each chapter starts with a set of ten ‘Garland Beads’, the author’s modern liberal rendition of Gampopa’s Root Text. Creatively elucidated in each extended chapter, are B. Simhananda’s ‘Contemplative Contemporary Commentaries’ on each set of ten beads.
Readers of Buddhist literature and philosophy will appreciate ‘Gampopa’s Precious Garland’ in a new mode of understanding and in today’s contemporary style of written expression.
