Summary

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 20 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.

Accessible presentation

Clear and insightful presentation of the Lojong teachings making this essential practice more widely accessible. Narration is slightly jarring, as others have pointed out, but if you can get past that the rewards are considerable. May all beings benefit.

Wonderful book

Accessible, widespread, knowledgeable, and practical. Traleg Rinpoche reviews 64 slogans with clarity and generosity. I listened to the book twice and obviously don't remember all 64 slogans.

In a few years I'll pick the book up again and know that I'll hear things I didn't hear during my first listen. This is a keeper-- a book to go back to from time to time to refresh and rejuvenate methods, measures, and actions.

Excellent

This is a remarkable statement of traditional mind training in a modern idiom that refuses to excise the spiritual elements of the teaching.

Insightful and easy to follow solid teachings

This is my second book from this great master and he's helped me learn the essentials about key teachings from the Buddha. The teachings are so well structured, and they build upon each other in a way that they help set the conditions for a greater awakening. May all beings be free of suffering. May all beings be happy.

Pronunciations are a bit off

The Tibetan and Sanskrit pronunciations are not accurate, but that does not bring a difference to the quality of the book

Great book

You can tell the author has a lot of wisdom and means what he says. I think they're a he(?) but yeah the authoritative tone was like a warm and trusted parent telling you how to progress spiritually. Very worth it.
