  • What would be the practical implications of caring about others than about yourself This is the radical theme of this extraordinary set of instructions, a training manual composed in the fourteenth century by the Buddhist hermit Ngulchu Thogme, here explained in detail by one of the great Tibetan Buddhist masters of the twentieth century, Dilgo Khyentse.In the MahayaWhat would be the practical implications of caring about others than about yourself This is the radical theme of this extraordinary set of instructions, a training manual composed in the fourteenth century by the Buddhist hermit Ngulchu Thogme, here explained in detail by one of the great Tibetan Buddhist masters of the twentieth century, Dilgo Khyentse.In the Mahayana tradition, those who have the courage to undertake the profound change of attitude required to develop true compassion are called bodhisattvas Their great resolve to consider others needs as paramount, and thus to attain enlightenment for the sake of all living creatures carries them beyond the limits imposed by the illusions of I and mine, culminating in the direct realization of reality, transcending dualistic notions of self and other.This classic text presents ways that we can work with our own hearts and minds, starting wherever we find ourselves now, to unravel our small minded preoccupations and discover our own potential for compassion, love, and wisdom Many generations of Buddhist practitioners have been inspired by these teachings, and the great masters of all traditions have written numerous commentaries Dilgo Khyentse s commentary is probably his most extensive recorded teaching on Mahayana practice.

    1.

    2. I will be currently reading these thirty seven verses for a long time This isn t a book to be read cover to cover and then put on a shelf It s really a handbook and sometimes a textbook on living a compassionate life And writing a review of it is like a writing a review of the Bible As Buddhist texts go, it is really very comfortable to read, but that by nomeans makes it easy It s a lot of work, and pretty much turns my life upside down each time I sit down with it And that is precisely why I wi [...]

    3. Wonderful book Read it twice while backpacking in the Western Himalaya DKR s writing is pure poetry Easy to understand, humorous, beautiful and very practical.

    4. Reading this book was a complete blessing I felt that the root text was extremely well taught and that it was directed at me.

    5. This book so clearly elucidates the heart of Mahayana practice I recommend this to anyone who has a solid foundation in Buddhist thought.

    6. Confession I did not make it to the end Sigh But after over a year of it sitting on my currently reading list and picking up realizing I lost my place and really don t know where it was I don t think I am going to finish it This one was a bit above my head I hope someday to have the merit and wisdom to appreciate it as the jewel I hear it is at that time I will start over from the beginning.

    7. This special book is meant to be read slowly and contemplatively There is so much ancient wisdom that can be applied to our lives in this 21st century It s a real treasure.

    8. Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche s commentary is clear, very accessible, and simply very easy to read and understand.

    9. Excellent If all children would read this by sixteen and really practiced these 37 practices, then in two generations war as we know it would end and maybe famine
