Description:

This book presents commentary, stories, and historical background on the lojong slogans of Tibetan Buddhism. Used by meditators through the ages to cultivate awareness and compassion—and made popular by successful books by Pema Chödrön and Chögyam Trungpa—this contemplation practice offers guidance for remaining receptive and wakeful amid the ups and downs of daily life. These meditations have long been considered the quintessence of Buddhist teachings for cultivating an awakened heart and a compassionate mind. Traleg Kyabgon, a revered contemporary Tibetan master, offers practical and thorough explanations of each of the fifty-nine lojong slogans, including: Don’t wait in ambush.Always maintain a cheerful outlook.Don’t attack others’ vulnerable points. The Practice of Lojong will be of interest to all those who want to explore how Buddhist teachings can help us find clarity and balance in daily life, and it will deepen the understanding of those who have read other popular books on lojong, such as Start Where You Are by Pema Chödrön and Training the Mind and Cultivating Lovingkindness by Chögyam Trungpa.
