Lamrim Chenmo (Tib. ལམ་རིམ་ཆེན་མོ་, Wyl. lam rim chen mo) or 'The Great Exposition of the Stages of the Path' is perhaps the most famous work of Tsongkhapa Lobzang Drakpa, written in 1402. It is ostensibly a commentary on Atisha's Lamp for the Path of Awakening, although it is also influenced by Drolungpa's Tenrim Chenmo and quotes extensively from the works of Indian masters.
