Always Maintain a Joyful Mind Book and CD

and Other Lojong Teachings on Awakening Compassion and Fearlessness

Pema Chodron
Translated by Nalanda Translation Group

For centuries Tibetan Buddhists have relied on a collection of fifty-nine pith teachings called lojong to help them develop wisdom and compassion amid the challenges of daily living. In this book Pema Chodron introduces these transformative teachings and offers guidance on how to make them part of our everyday lives.

The lojong teachings include: "Always maintain only a joyful mind," "Don't be swayed by external circumstances," "Don't be so predictable," and "Be grateful to everyone." Each slogan is followed by Pema Chodron's accessible and succinct commentary on how to understand and apply it. Complete with a forty-five-minute audio program entitled "Opening the Heart," in which Pema Chodron offers in-depth instruction on tonglen meditation, a powerful practice that anyone can undertake to awaken compassion for oneself and others.
