Stages of Meditation
Stages of Meditation (Skt. Bhāvanākrama; Tib. སྒོམ་རིམ་, Gomrim, Wyl. sgom rim) — an important text (comprising three books) on meditation written by Kamalashila in Tibet, after his famous victory in debate at Samyé over Hashang Mahayana, which would ensure that the Tibetans follow the Indian tradition of gradual meditation. They are the fundamental texts for the study and practise of shamatha and vipashyana in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
