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.

Synopsis:

For many centuries Tibetan Buddhists have employed 59 pithy slogans to help them develop clarity, intelligence and compassion in all circumstances. This work covers this practice, called lojong, to Westerners. Readers learn how slogan practice can become a means of overcoming fear.

Synopsis:

Made popular by Pema Chodron in her book "Start Where You Are, " this is a collection of classic "slogans" from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition that can be used to cultivate compassion and awareness amid the struggles of daily living.
