The Seven Points of Mind Training (LoJong)
The Seven Points of Mind Training is a method of developing a relative bodhichitta practice which was brought to Tibet by the great Atisha. This practice is very effective in working with emotions. One usually learns or memorizes a number of instructions and every time the situation where the solution is one of these instructions, one thinks of the instruction and changes one's behavior.
Thrangu Rinpoche clearly explains these Seven Points which are presented in Jamgon Kongtrul Lodrö Thaye’s classic text, The Great Path of Awakening. In Rinpoche’s view, the combination of Mahamudra and Mind Training is an excellent balance of ultimate and relative bodhichitta practice that together offer a swift path to full realization.
