Ther are lots of possible routes to get from A to B in this town. 

Which is the quickest and most efficient? 

With the help of a map and a skilful guide to point out the best route, I can make the journey as quickly as possible. 

Lamrim is the path to enlightenment. It is the most efficient way to reach enlightenment from where I am now. My Spiritual Guide has given me the precious instructions, and it is my job to follow his directions with great devotion. 

May all living beings attain the destination of enlightenment quickly and without delay.
