Be Grateful to Everyone: An In-Depth Guide to the Practice of Lojong (7 CDs) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the best ways to bring meditation off the cushion and into everyday life is to practice lojong (or mind training). For centuries, Tibetans have used fifty-nine powerful mind-training slogans as a way to transform life’s ordinary situations into opportunities for awakening. In this seven-CD program, Pema Chödrön presents her definitive audio teachings on lojong. She offers an overview of the practice and goes on to provide inspiring commentary on the slogans while paying special attention to how to apply them on the spot in our daily lives. The CDs include:

   • Practical commentary to enhance our understanding of the lojong slogans

   • Seven writing and reflection exercises to help us engage deeply with the slogans

   • Meditation instructions to help us relax, let go, and uncover our uncaught-up mind

   • On-the-spot methods to deepen our bodhichitta, our compassion for all beings

   • Question-and-answer sessions that address some of the most common issues that arise in lojong practice

   • Two guided meditations on tonglena compassion practice based on the understanding that the very thing that triggers suffering can become the foundation of happiness

Synopsis:

Pema Chödrön is an American Buddhist nun in the lineage of Chögyam Trungpa. She is resident teacher at Gampo Abbey in Nova Scotia, the first Tibetan monastery in North America established for Westerners. She is the author of many books and audiobooks, including the best-selling When Things Fall Apart and Don't Bite the Hook.

Synopsis:

The best way to bring meditation off the cushion and into everyday life, according to Tibetan Buddhists, is to practice lojong (or mind training). The practice consists of working with a series of fifty-nine mind-training slogans (phrases such as “A joyous state of mind is a constant support” and “Don’t talk about others’ shortcomings”), taking one slogan at a time and living with it in all life’s situations.

In this eight-CD program, Pema Chödrön presents her definitive teachings on lojong. She offers an overview of the practice and goes on to provide inspiring commentary on each of the slogans while paying special attention to how to apply them on the spot in our daily lives. In particular, Pema emphasizes the importance of practicing with the slogans during life’s difficulties because, she says, “no matter what is happening in the moment, it is a vehicle for awakening compassion.”
