Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This text provides Zhechen Gyaltsab's 1871-1926 commentary on a seven-point Buddhist practice taught by Chekhawa Yeshe Dorje 1101-75the most extensive commentary in the Tibetan canon on a root text studied by all schools of Tibetan Buddhism. Volume 1 focuses on preliminary practices, such as devotion to the teacher and gaining detachment by seeing the impermanence of everything; Volume 2 covers all other practices. The key is to generate Bodhicitta, the enlightened mind for the sake of others. This "path of heros" is cultivated through lojong, or self-mastery. Each section is introduced by Tarthang Tulku, the founder of Nyingma Institute and Dharma Publishing. His reflections aid the student in applying the beautifully stated precepts. A four-month study program closes the text. Highly recommended for informed readers and scholars.Dara Eklund, Los Angeles P.L.
