This texts, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche presents here is Seven POint Mind Training, brought ot Tibet by Indian master Atisha. This teaching is the very core of the entire practice of Tibetan Buddhism. It condenses the compassionate path to Buddhahood into practical instructions which make use of all the circumstances of everyday life. Khyentse Rinpoche gave this commentary in the Dordogne, France, during his last visit to the West. He speaks frankly from his heart, drawing on his own life long experience. The fact that Rinpoche has departed from this world adds much poignancy to his words, which many of his students regard as his parting gift.
