Reviews

"Compiled in the fifteenth century, this is the earliest anthology on mind training (lojong), containing no fewer than 43 individual texts authored in the period between the eleventh and the fifteenth centuries. Each text in this anthology, compiled by two great masters, is like a sparkling jewel in a precious crown, which derives its luminosity from the spiritual realization of the adept who wrote it. Thupten Jinpa, the editor and translator, is a most erudite guide whose introduction and annotations to the texts greatly facilitate the reader's understanding of the essentially simple but multifaceted tradition of mind training. I have a feeling that this volume will be one of my favorite sources of inspiration in the years to come."--Georg Feuerstein, Traditional Yoga Studies Interactive "Thupten Jinpa has done us all a great service by editing and translating this marvelous volume, Mind Training: The Great Collection. In an era when Buddhist meditation is largely equated with simply calming the mind and developing mindfulness, this compendium of methods for training the mind gives a glimpse of the tremendous richness and depth of the Buddhist tradition for enhancing mental health and balance and realizing the full potential of consciousness in terms of wisdom and compassion. With the current rise of positive psychology, in which researchers are seeking a fresh vision of genuine happiness and well-being, this volume can break new ground in bridging the ancient wisdom of Buddhism with cutting-edge psychology. Such collaborative inquiry between spirituality and science is especially timely in today's troubled and divisive world."--B. Alan Wallace, author of The Attention Revolution: Unlocking the Power of the Focused Mind
