This small accessible book contains the essence of the Seven-Point Mind Training, expressed in the intimate colloquial style that distinguishes Ringu Tulku's teachings.
The Seven-Point Mind Training - a lojong practice - assumes no prior special training or preparation.
It does not require practitioners to enter seclusion or change the way they live their lives.
It gives instructions for tonglen breathing practice that ties the concepts of lojong to the physical act of breathing.
Ringu Tulku was born in Eastern Tibet in 1952. He is the director of seven meditation centers in Europe, the United States and India, and he travels and teaches extensively in Europe and the United States.
Mind Training focuses simply on giving up, self-cherishing, and transforming self-centered thinking into compassion, egoistic feelings into altruism, desire into acceptance, and resentment into joy.
