As His Holiness reiterated at a talk in Delhi on 05 February 2006, in order to practice Buddhism one cannot rely on faith and prayers. Rather, Buddhists must utilize their mental intelligence (to the max) in order to discern the nature of conventional and ultimate reality so they can conform their behavior to that reality. His Holiness singled out the study of Philosophical Tenet systems as an excellent method for utilizing and developing intelligence on the Buddhist path.
During December 2005 teachings in McLeod Ganj, His Holiness gave a transmission and teaching on Gon-chok Jig-may Wang-bo's Precious Garland of Tenets. The MP3 CD of that teaching may be available from Namgyal Monastery.
