From the Back Cover

One is unlikely ever to receive a Tibetan Buddhist teaching on either sutra or tantra in which Bodhicitta does not have a central role. Bodhicitta, the compassionate mind which aspires to attain full enlightenment in order to benefit beings, is the very quintessence of the Mahayana path of Buddhist practice. In this practical handbook, Ven. Lobsang Gyatso describes the classical methods for developing the mind of enlightenment and, based on his experience as a meditator and a teacher, examines a wide range of obstacles to its development.

Format: Paperback
This book uses a traditional approach to introduce the reader to bodhicitta, the mind of enlightenment or the awakening mind. The style of this book very much resembles Stages of the Path (Lamrim) literature. This book could easily pass for an excerpt from a larger Lamrim work. The focus of this book concerns how bodhicitta is to be integrated into one's meditation practice. Several meditation techniques are explained, including the sevenfold cause and effect instruction as well as the equalizing and exchanging self with others instruction. The latter method is also the central practice of the Tibetan mind training (lojong) tradition. The traditional, academic structure of this book can be somewhat daunting, but the strength and clarity of the actual instructions justifies a positive review.

This is one of my 'keepers' of my book shelf.

The book is well written and in the author's voice. So you can feel and understand what he is writing instead of just reading the words.

I will re-read this book many times i am sure. Excellent !
