Here is a practical Buddhist guidebook that offers techniques for developing a truly compassionate heart in the midst of everyday life. For centuries, Tibetans have used fifty-nine pithy slogans--such as "A joyous state of mind is a constant support" and "Don't talk about others' shortcomings"--as a means to awaken kindness, gentleness, and compassion. While Tibetan Buddhists have long valued these slogans, recently they have become popular in the West due to such books as "Start Where You Are" by Pema Chodron and "Training the Mind" by Chogyam Trungpa. This edition of "The Great Path of Awakening" contains an accessible, newly revised translation of the slogans from the famous text "The Seven Points of Mind Training," It also includes illuminating commentary from Jamgon Kongtrul that provides further instruction on how to meet every situation with intelligence and an open heart.

Reviews

"Jamgon Kongtrul's commentary on the slogans is one of the best books I studied. I was relieved that Buddhism was so simple. You can just follow the book and do as it says, which is extraordinarily powerful and such a relief."-Choegyam Trungpa "Jamgon Kongtrul's commentary on the slogans is one of the best books I studied.
