Essential Mind Training is drawn from the earliest collection of Tibetan spiritual literature known as ?mind traininga or lojong in Tibetan. Tibetans revere the mind training tradition for its pragmatic and down-to-earth advice, especially the teachings on ?transforming adversity into opportunity.a This volume contains eighteen individual works, including such renowned teachings as Atisa's Bodhisattva's Jewel Garland, Langri Thangpa's Eight Verses on Mind Training, and Chekawa's Seven-Point Mind Training, together with the earliest commentaries on these seminal texts as well as other independent works. These teachings expound the cultivation of such altruistic attitudes as compassion, love, forbearance, and perseverance, and provide numerous techniques for uprooting our habitual self-centeredness and giving us the freedom to embrace the world.Essential Mind Training is drawn from the earliest collection of Tibetan spiritual literature known as ?mind traininga or lojong in Tibetan.
