The great Indian Buddhist scholar Atisha went to Indonesia and spent 12 yearrs studying Buddhism there. When he returned to India, he condensed his realization into short one-line instructions on how to behave correctly as a Buddhist and how to develop one's practice to become a Bodhisattva. His student, Chekawa Yeshe Dorje, condensed these teachings, sometimes called "slogans," into 59 intructions which are now called The Seven Points of Mind Training.
These 59 instructions on Mind Training are short, easily memorized and then will pop into our mind in the many situations of our daily life helping us to make decisions that will produce positive karma for us and others.
Under Thrangu Rinpoche's direction Mechele Martin has made a new translation of the original Tibetan. Some of these instructions are hard to understand and Thrangu Rinpoche's commentary greatly clarifies the intent and meaning of these profound instructions.
