For many centuries Indian and Tibetan Buddhists have employed this collection of pithy, penetrating Dharma slogans to develop compassion, equanimity, lovingkindness, and joy for others. Known as the lojong—or mind-training—teachings, these slogans have been the subject of deep study, contemplation, and commentary by many great masters.

In this volume, Traleg Kyabgon offers a fresh translation of the slogans as well as in-depth new commentary of each. After living among and teaching Westerners for over twenty years, his approach is uniquely insightful into the ways that the slogans could be misunderstood or misinterpreted within our culture. Here, he presents a refreshing and clarifying view, which seeks to correct points of confusion.

About the Author:
Traleg Kyabgon (1955–2012) was born in Eastern Tibet and educated by many great masters of all four major lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. He is the founder of the Kagyu E-Vam Buddhist Institute, which is headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, with a major practice center in upstate New York and a practice community in New York City. He taught extensively at universities and Buddhist centers in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia beginning in 1980, and is the author of numerous books that present Buddhist teachings to Western readers, including The Essence of Buddhism and Mind at Ease.
Review:
"These profound Mahayana trainings, practiced for centuries in Tibet, are presented with clarity, compassionate directness, and penetrating insight. This volume should be cherished as the companion of all who seek true meaning in life."—Tulku Thondup, author of Peace Death, Joyful Rebirth "Traleg Kyabgon draws from a wealth of traditional Buddhist sources and brings them into the context of contemporary life and thought. The wisdom of these teachings is equally relevant for all cultures, ancient and modern."—B. Alan Wallace, author of Buddhism with an Attitude
