Editorial Reviews

Review

"Filled with stories and examples, the great strength of Enlightened Courage is that it makes you realize the possibility of a radically different point of view."—Shambhala Sun

"Inspired and very clear."—Tibet Journal

"When I think of Zurchungpa for his great scholarship, years of practice in solitary retreats, and for his great wisdom, compassion, and charisma to lead countless students of all levels, my mind naturally goes to Dilgo Khentse Rinpoche. He must have been someone like him. This book enshrines the living experience and heart of two truly realized masters, translated by people who not only understand but also practice the teachings."—Ringu Tulku

About the Author

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (1910–1991) was a highly accomplished meditation master, scholar, and poet, and a principal holder of the Nyingma lineage. His extraordinary depth of realization enabled him to be, for all who met him, a foundation of loving-kindness, wisdom, and compassion. A dedicated exponent of the nonsectarian Rime movement, Khyentse Rinpoche was respected by all schools of Tibetan Buddhism and taught many eminent teachers, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He tirelessly worked to uphold the Dharma through the publication of texts, the building of monasteries and stupas, and by offering instruction to thousands of people throughout the world. His writings in Tibetan fill twenty-five volumes.

Very succinct treatment of Atisha's 7 point mind training/slogans.

Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, who passed away in 1991, was one of the great Dharma lions of his generation, a teacher of teachers (including His Holiness the Dalai Lama).

I am a Zen practitioner, not a Tibetan practitioner, but I simply wept when I read this book.

For those of us who cannot grasp into deep esoteric teachings, this book is simply amazing. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche takes the Tibetan Text "The Thirty Seven Verseson the Practice of a Bodhisattva" and expounds upon it in such a way as to transform it into very personal, very practical ways for using your mind and living this life. Don't get me wrong, this isn't watered down simplistic teachings like "be nice" this is still hard core Bodhisattva practice... and Dilgo Rinpoche's teachings cut across all traditions. I am a Zen practitioner, not a Tibetan practitioner, but I simply wept when I read this book. It is so very helpful for those of us attempting to cultivate true compassion and live out of that, no matter what tradition we practice in... For people who need the teachings to be practical and clear, this book is a true gem.

The lojong--"mind transformation"--tradition in Vajrayana Buddhism constitutes a profound spiritual discipline for overcoming the root casue of suffering and cultivating real happiness. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, who passed away in 1991, was one of the great Dharma lions of his generation, a teacher of teachers (including His Holiness the Dalai Lama). Here he offers a practical, uncompromising, yet always compassionate guide to applying the lojong teachings in ALL of daily life, whatever comes to knock us on the head. I would recommend studying this volume alongside the Dalai Lama's TRANSFORMING THE MIND--TEACHINGS ON GENERATING COMPASSION, which provides a wonderfully humane and practical commentary on the famous "Eight Verses on Transforming the Mind."

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Edward R. Kelley on November 10, 2008
Format: Paperback
This book graciously presents one of the most profound teachings of all times with guidance and commentary from one of the greatest teachers of Tantric Buddhism of the Twentieth Century.
This book needs to not only be read, but seriously studied repeatedly by any serious practitioner of bodhicitta. Simple instructions for an astoundingly comprehensive state of consciousness.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very succinct treatment of Atisha's 7 point mind training/slogans. Full poem of the slogans at the beginning is a plus. Chogyam's Trungpa's Training the Mind is a bit longer if one wants more explanation but that book those not have all the slogans in one place at the beginning. Therefore both books are useful and complementary works.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is speaks on two things :Emptiness and Compassion which must go hand in hand if one is to seek enlightenment . Some may find the book a little boring initially but eventually you would realise that Master Dilgo is just teaching a method from scratch . Love the part when he says : to practise meditation with your beads every day without even missing one bead.A book which you have to go back again and again to see where your consciousness level is . A bible for the mind .
