Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Warning: Using this book could be hazardous to your ego! The slogans it contains are designed to awaken the heart and cultivate love and kindness toward others. They are revolutionary in that practicing them fosters abandonment of personal territory in relating to others and in understanding the world as it is.

The fifty-nine provocative slogans presented here—each with a commentary by the Tibetan meditation master Chögyam Trungpa—have been used by Tibetan Buddhists for eight centuries to help meditation students remember and focus on important principles and practices of mind training. They emphasize meeting the ordinary situations of life with intelligence and compassion under all circumstances. Slogans include, "Don't be swayed by external circumstances," "Be grateful to everyone," and "Always maintain only a joyful mind."

This edition contains a new foreword by Pema Chödrön.

About the Author

Chögyam Trungpa (1940–1987) was a meditation master, teacher, and artist who founded Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, and an international association of meditation centers known as Shambhala International. He is the author of numerous books.

Carolyn Peck, January 27, 2010 (view all comments by Carolyn Peck)
I used this book for three years, rereading it frequently and being beguiled by the cunning behind its suggestions, many of which are counter intuitive. Then I discovered the seven points mind training fits into a sophisticated system of buddhism. and the usual beginning point is elsewhere, in such notions as Four thoughts that turn the mind, the four immeasurables and other lists upon lists. The volume is small and not overwhelming, yet huge in its effect. I highly commend it to anyone interested in unveiling their own mind and taming it.
