About this product
- DescriptionIt is interesting that, whether we are Buddhist or t, if we think about the great kindness of all beings it will be evident that all our happiness does indeed depend upon them. In this title, first published by LYWA in 2006 and long out of print but w available to you in this Print-On-Demand version, Khensur Rinpoche Geshe Jampa Tegchok explains how we can train our mind away from self-cherishing, the cause of all suffering, and develop compassion, the cause of everything that is good. Rinpoche bases his explanation on Kadampa Geshe Chekawa's classic text, The Seven Point Mind Training, which, amongst other things, teaches us how to transform problems into happiness.

He studied the major Buddhist treatises at Sera-je Monastic University in Tibet for fourteen years before fleeing his homeland in 1959 after the abortive uprising of the Tibetans against the Communist Chinese occupation of their country. After staying in the refugee camp at Buxa, India, Geshe Tegchok went to the Central Institute for Higher Tibetan Studies, Varanasi, where he obtained his Acharya (Master) Degree and taught for seven years. He then began teaching in the West-three years in England and ten years at Nalanda Monastery in France, and then in the United States. In 1993, His Holiness the Dalai Lama appointed him as abbot of Sera-je Monastic University in India until he retired from that post.
