Compiled in the fifteenth century, Mind Training: The Great Collection is the earliest anthology of a special genre of Tibetan literature known as 'mind training', or lojong in Tibetan.

The principal focus of these texts is the systematic cultivation of such altruistic thoughts and emotions as compassion, love, forbearance, and perseverance.

The volume contains forty-four individual texts, including the most important works of the mind training cycle, such as Serlingpa's well-known Leveling Out All Preconceptions , Atisha's Bodhisattva's Jewel Garland , Langri Thangpa's Eight Verses on Training the Mind , and Chekawa's Seven-Point Mind Training together with the earliest commentaries on these seminal texts.

An accurate and lyrical translation of these texts, many of which are in metered verse, marks an important contribution to the world's literary heritage, enriching its spiritual resources.
