For many centuries Indian and Tibetan Buddhists have employed this collection of pithy, penetrating Dharma slogans to develop compassion, equanimity, lovingkindness, and joy for others. Known as the lojong - or mind-training - teachings, these slogans have been the subject of deep study, contemplation, and commentary by many great masters. In this volume, Traleg Kyabgon offers a fresh translation of the slogans as well as in-depth new commentary of each. After living among and teaching Westerners for over 20 years, his approach is uniquely insightful into the ways that the slogans could be misunderstood or misinterpreted within our culture. Here, he presents a refreshing and clarifying view, which seeks to correct points of confusion.

Accessible, widespread, knowledgeable, and practical. Traleg Rinpoche reviews 64 slogans with clarity and generosity. I listened to the book twice and obviously don't remember all 64 slogans.
In a few years I'll pick the book up again and know that I'll hear things I didn't hear during my first listen. This is a keeper-- a book to go back to from time to time to refresh and rejuvenate methods, measures, and actions.
This is a remarkable statement of traditional mind training in a modern idiom that refuses to excise the spiritual elements of the teaching.
"Pronunciations are a bit off"
The Tibetan and Sanskrit pronunciations are not accurate, but that does not bring a difference to the quality of the book
