Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The slogans contained in this book 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 an understanding of 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 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.

trainerdoc, September 5, 2006 (view all comments by trainerdoc)
Trungpa's genius again manifests here in this life-long manual for personal development. Too important to just read for yet-more knowledge of things spiritual, Training the Mind presents a compilation of practices that only become apparent in their degree and value of power over repeated practice and time. A true gem for those who are serious about their practice, yet for just simple reading perhaps as pearls before swine--although the author does well delivering in his typically on-the-spot style, making for reading with the right feel.
