    1. Lojong is a really wonderful and powerful practice that offers an accessible core of the mahayana Lojong is a set of slogans overall, their themes encourage us to take difficulties, crisis and pain and transform it into an opportunity to deepen mindfulness, compassion, and self growth There are many excellent books on the lojong, including Pema Ch dron s Start Where You Are and Trungpa Rinpoche s Training the Mind I suggest reading them in order for the non buddhist, starting with Pema s She is [...]

    2. Lojong Practice or Mind Training This is a sweet and concise guide The 59 slogans are clear and presented in a helpful manner I took one a day for the last two months and meditated each morning on it I think it has helped This guide has many Stoic like references like turn suffering into the path the obstacle is the way and its instance that ego clinging is at the root of the problem Loved this book and the whole Lojong Practice thing Now I m taking up Alan Wallace s treatment of Mind Training i [...]

    3. While I feel certain rating my experience of this book at 5 stars, I do not pretend to understand all or maybe much of it But the general messages of compassion for others, and the exquisite utilizing and transforming of difficulties as a means of self development are immeasurably beautiful and essential.And while reading this book was not directly practical for me, outside of providing inspiration from a sound and harmonious perspective, this little gem of a book does seem to be practical in it [...]

    4. The Great Path of Awakening is useful in that it provides the Lojong mind training teachings in something close to their original context But this classic text is far from the most accessible for the average Buddhist practitioner I found Pema Chodron s series of lectures about the Lojong teachings recorded at a retreat and presented in the audio recording Be Grateful to Everyone to be a great learning tool Her book Start Where You Are also a good overview.

    5. This well produced, richly annotated version is still my favorite text on the Mahayana practice known as mind training The translator and annotator, Ken McLeod, has gone on to become a distinguished Buddhist teacher in his own right It s not the kind of practice that a beginner can jump in to, but it s the kind of practice that we should all aspire to how to put the needs of others consistently before our own, and how to turn the vicissitudes of everyday life into a spiritual practice.

    6. This is the root teaching of the Seven Point Mind Training The translation is excellent clear and modern language without missing the original intentions of the teaching Excellent notes.
