An oral commentary to Geshe Langri Tangpa's poem Mind
Training in Eight Verses. Lojong, or Mind Training, is a form of Mahayana
Buddhist practice common to both the Sutra and Tantra traditions. Its principal aim is to
develop and strengthen Bodhichitta, the wish to achieve enlightenment in order to help all
living beings. The concise presentation of this teaching makes it the ideal companion for
your briefcase or pocketbook, or your daily contemplations. The humorous and warm-hearted
oral commentary by Abbot Emeritus of Sera Mey Monastery Khensur Rinpoche Lobsang Tharchin,
makes the meaning of the verses come alive to the modern mind.
