The heart of Kadampa Buddhism is the practice of Lamrim, the stages of the path to enlightenment, which is a special presentation of Buddha's teachings that is easily integrated into modern daily life. If we meditate on these stages and put them into practice, we will have the opportunity to purify all our daily experience and turn them into the path to enlightenment.
