Book coverThe Practice of Lojong: Cultivating Compassion through Training the Mind, by Traleg Kyabgon

The lojong slogans—those fabric-softeners of the heart—have been the focus of much attention in the West the past couple decades, with good reason. They’re a particularly effective practice for disciplining the mind in a way that makes compassion bloom. But they’re sometimes misunderstood as something akin to the “affirmations” that were popular a few years back. Such a misunderstanding can’t easily survive a reading of this book. Traleg Kyabgon’s commentary on them is extensive, clear, and shows how relevant they are to any time and place.
