An engaging and lively exploration by Shamar Rinpoche of the frequently studied Buddhist subject called lojong, or mind training. Shamar Rinpoche bases his discussion on a classic text by the eminent sixteenth-century Buddhist teacher, the Fifth Shamarpa. As elucidated by Shamar Rinpoche, the material is made especially applicable for our modern-day lives. Topics included in the book such as “Transforming adverse circumstances into the path of awakening” are exceptionally relevant for us to explore today. Shamar Rinpoche gave these teachings at a program less than two weeks before his passing. The presentation reflects the richness of the author’s life as a Buddhist master of his stature—a rare offering from which we can all benefit.
