This book is a commentary on Je Chekawa Yeshe Dorje's Seven Points of Mind Training, one of the best known and most beloved texts of Tibetan Buddhism because of its practical yet effective approach to dealing with the short- and long-term difficulties that all beings face.

In this book which Rinpoche himself edited, he explains clearly and simply how to use the practice of mind training and tonglen meditation to transform our habitual selfishness into the compassionate altruism necessary to bring happiness to ourselves and others.

"These oral instructions on mind training from the Mahayana that the glorious Lord Atisha passed down have been explained in many different ways, but the best of them all is the master Ja Chekawa's commentary in seven points. In order that beginners can easily understand the meaning of its words, my tutor Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche has written this wonderful, elegant commentary in colloquial language that is easy to understand."-- H.H. Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje
