Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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

Children's Literature - Carlee Hallman
In the summer of 1990, a Tibetan Buddhist master named Rinpoche (1910-1991) led a month-long seminar on "The Heart of the Buddhist Path" in France. He taught from his experience over his (then) eighty years of life. His teaching was based on the Mind Training of Atisha (an Indian master) and Wangpo (a Tibetan master). This book is translated from Tibetan to present a teaching that is "the very core of the entire practice of Tibetan Buddhism." The Seven Points move from detachment from body to dispassionate mind. Advice in practice and ways to train the mind are given through stories and principles. Rinpoche advises that the application of "uncomfortable situations … to advantage in our lives … is a sign that we have accomplished something in the Mind Training." At the end of the book is a prayer of Seven Point Mind Training, along with extensive notes and a glossary with pronunciation guide. This is a book for adults well along in the practice of Buddhism.

Meet 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.
