Course Description

In this 15th-century mind training text, Nam-Kha Pel, a disciple of Lama Tsongkhapa, presents a variant lineage of "Seven Point Mind Training," supplementing it with extensive material from the Lam-rim graded path. What is distinctive about this presentation is that he has managed to combine both the mind training instructions as they are recorded in Geshe Che-Ka-Wa's text with the pattern of the Path.

The mind training teachings are a great vehicle instruction, because they are mostly concerned with developing the awakening mind, the altruistic mind of enlightenment. They are directed primarily towards the practitioner of great capacity, and deal essentially with transforming our mental attitudes. One special feature of the mind training teachings is the advice to transform adversity into advantage. So, not only do these instructions help us open out towards other beings, but they also help us transform whatever difficulties come our way into something valuable.
