Overview

Warning: Using this book could be hazardous to your ego! The slogans it contains are designed to awaken the heart and cultivate love and kindness toward others. They are revolutionary in that practicing them fosters abandonment of personal territory in relating to others and in understanding the world as it is. 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.

This book presents a series of traditional Buddhist slogans to be used as a study aid for practitioners of meditation, the aim of which is to train the mind, awaken the heart, and cultivate love and kindness toward others. In use by Tibetan Buddhists for 800 years, the slogans are brought here into contemporary usage.
