For many centuries Tibetan Buddhists have employed fifty-nine pithy slogans to help them develop clarity, intelligence, and compassion in all circumstances. In this book, Tibetan meditation master Chgyam Trungpa offers this revolutionary practice, called lojong, to Westerners. Readers learn how slogan practice can become a powerful means of overcoming fear and self-centredness. Slogans include: 'Don't be swayed by external circumstances' and 'Always maintain only a joyful mind'.
Ch gyam Trungpa (1940-1987)--meditation master, teacher, and artist--founded Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado, the first Buddhist-inspired university in North America; the Shambhala Training program; and an international association of meditation centers known as Shambhala International. He is the author of numerous books including Shambhala: The Sacred Path of the Warrior, Cutting Through Spiritual Materialism, and The Myth of Freedom.
