Publisher's Summary

Warning: Using this book could be hazardous to your ego! The slogans it contains are designed to awaken the heart and cultivate love and kindness toward others. They are revolutionary in that practicing them fosters abandonment of personal territory in relating to others and in understanding the world as it is.

The 59 provocative slogans presented here - each with a commentary by the Tibetan meditation master Chgyam Trungpa - have been used by Tibetan Buddhists for eight centuries to help meditation students remember and focus on important principles and practices of mind training. They emphasize meeting the ordinary situations of life with intelligence and compassion under all circumstances. Slogans include, "Don't be swayed by external circumstances," "Be grateful to everyone," and "Always maintain only a joyful mind. "This edition contains a new foreword by Pema Chodron.

A great experience

I've been through the this book twice in retreat and have read it once, even still, I found hearing it gave me a much deeper understanding of the topic. The narrator was excellent and I found his pronunciation clear and helpful.

Slow but informative

Narrator was flatline in delivering the information. Content was more than I anticipated. Going to listen again this week for a second time.

hard book

i struggled to finish this book, btwn the narrator and uncaptavating content. The voice is too harsh for me and hard to follow - reminds me of one wrestler whose name i forget, the content is too deep for a beginner in the spiritual journey, it needs someone who has heard abt bodichita, sharmatar, mahayana etc, im soo lost! too many references to what i dont know

Useful Wisdom and a Soothing Voice

conducive to meditation. I listen before sleeping for tranquil rest and contemplation. I feel as though I finally am able to grasp the most fundamental aspects of Buddhism. This text efficiently translates abstraction to practice. I strongly recommend it.

Life Changing.

Would you listen to Training the Mind again? Why?

Yes, I can't wait to read it again. Why? Because it's so profound, I couldn't take it all in at once.

Any additional comments?

These are essential life instructions from a true meditation master.

Great insight

This book is a great guide to help you on your path. I can see this book being most useful if studied over and over. Take notes and research meanings for a mindful aspect of it.
