From the Inside Flap
The fifty-nine provocative slogans presented here?each with a commentary by the Tibetan meditation master Chögyam 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 Chödrön.

This small format book is a wealth of information -- more than the mere "slogans" which lead each section. It is a careful revelation of principals and practices one usese to train the mind, emphasizing how one can use compassion and intelligence in dealing with everyday situations. A real gem of a book to read and read again.
