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 mind-training teachings are highly revered by the Tibetan people for their pragmatism and down-to-earth advice on coping with the various challenges and hardships that unavoidably characterize everyday human existence. 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.

The mind training tradition that developed in Tibet has its source from the great iIndian masters Nagarjuna and Shantideva and it was brought into Tibet by Atisa in the eleventh century. The practice of Mind training is based on the essential Mahayana teachings of impermanence, compassion, and the exchange of self and other. The lojong teachings are a source of inspiration and guidance shared by masters of all Tibetan traditions. The Seven Point Mind Training is a popular Tibetan Buddhist text by a twelveth century Kadampa master Geshe Chekawa. An Extensive Commentary on the Seven Point Mind Training is a commentary on The Seven Point Mind Training by Gesge Lobsang Gyatsho. In this book he explains the practice of Mind Training as the synthesis of all the various trainings of Mahāyāna Buddhism into one practice with nothing omitted whatsoever. He constantly emphasizes the daily practice of the Mind Training teachings over mere study or memorization and enjoins us to place whatever intellectual understanding we may have into pure Dharma practice right now. Since the root text used here comprises pithy statements handed down by the great Kadampa masters of Tibet that require further elucidation, Gen Lobsang Gyatso explains them with the expertise of an individual who has lived these teachings for many years and has come to a personal, experiential mastery of them. He espouses them as the fundamental antidote to our samsaric suffering and afflictive emotions – the adamantine antidote that crushes our own worst enemy – our self-centered attitude. Among many text on Mind Training, Geshe Chekawa’s Seven Points for Training the Mind is widely used Chekhawa, was said to possess all the marks of a great being right from his birth. He received the Milarepa instructions from Rechungpa and had many other great teachers like Geshe Tsan, Jayulpa and so forth. It is said that he had memorized over one hundred scriptures, but always felt incomplete, thinking that there must be some other teaching for achieving enlightenment. Then at thirty he met the great teacher Sharawa who gave him experiential teaching for twelve years. Geshe Chekhawa was very satisfied as we see at the end of his text on the Seven Points of Mind Training where he says, “Now I have no regrets even if I die.” Sharawa gave this practice of exchanging oneself for the other as a secret teaching to Chekhawa. Thus the special focus of this text is how to eliminate self-cherishing attitudes which are the source of all the sufferings and problems that we face in our life.

The essential guide to training your brain for mindfulness—modern, science-based, and with no Buddhism required. Publisher’s note: Brain Training with the Buddha was previously published in hardcover as The Foundations of Mindfulness. Lifelong meditation teacher Eric Harrison intimately understands the benefits of mindfulness, from improved focus and better judgment to relaxation and inner peace. He’s helped tens of thousands of students to achieve these goals by rooting his practice in the Buddha’s original text on how to meditate and live mindfully: the Satipatthana Sutta. Brain Training with the Buddha offers a secular perspective on this ancient wisdom that requires no familiarity with Buddhism itself—only openness to the Buddha’s original teachings. Harrison’s translation of this sutta (the first in modern English) comes with guidance for anyone looking to train their mind by applying its thirteen steps to mindful living today.

The mind training teachings are a great vehicle instruction, because they are most concerned with developing the awakening mind, the altruistic mind of enlightenment. They are directed primarily towards the practitioner of great capacity, and deal essentially with transforming our metal attitudes. One special feature of the mind training teachings is the advice to transform adversity into advantage. So, not only do these instructions help us open out towards other beings, but they also help us transform whatever difficulties come our way into something valuable. The Mind Training Like the Rays of the Sun exemplifies Tsong-khapa’s presentation of mind training. The author, Nam-kha Pel, as he mentions in his introduction, received the lineage of the explanation of the Seven Point Mind Training, which is the fundamental text here, from various sources including Je Rinpoche, his principal teacher. what is distinctive about this presentation is that he has managed to combine both the mind training instructions as they are recorded in Geshey Che-ka-wa’s text with the pattern of the Stages of the Path.
