    One thought on “Essential Mind Training ”

    1. These are older writings on Mind Training translated by Thupten Jinpa with minor editing and very minimal commentary. Not really a book for the complete beginners to Buddhism or Mind Training. This is a very interesting book on the topic that might appeal to more intermediate or experienced readers of Buddhist texts looking to delve a deeper into some older texts. Nice clear translations that really help make the text approachable if you’re familiar with the concepts before hand.

    2. I really enjoyed pema chodron and norm fischer's books on lojong mind training, so I thought I'd go closer to the source. I found this really hard to understand from a layperson's perspective, and so it is hard to recommend.
