"Demonstrate[s] the enduring vitality and power of the lojong
tradition. . . . This lively little book is a window into how
mind-training slogans can be used as a teaching
tool."-Buddhadharma: The Practitioner's Quarterly
"This portable, petite book contains a profound and intimate teaching on the essence of the Seven-Point Mind Training and tonglen by contemporary Tibetan teacher Ringu Tulku. Very clearly written and elegantly designed, it contains useful foundational discussions on the mind compassion and the lojong tradition, elaborating point by point on the Seven-Point Mind Training with many practical examples, illustrative stories, and Q&A sessions that speak to a Western perspective. This teaching by Ringu Tulku takes a classical mind-training technique and makes it relevant to the challenges of modern Western practitioners seeking to take their practice off the cushion and into their daily lives."-Mandala Magazine
"Mind Training is in a realm of its own when it comes to widening the human potential. . . . The seven points of the lojong practice can benefit any person willing to live a more compassionate life for themselves and all others. Ringu Tulku's ability to lay out these points in such an understandable way for any reader is flawless."-The Feminist Review
