For centuries Tibetan Buddhists have relied on a collection of fifty-nine pith teachings (called lojong in Tibetan) to help them develop wisdom and compassion amid the challenges of daily living. In this book Pema Ch#65533;dr#65533;n 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 Ch#65533;dr#65533;n's accessible and succinct commentary on how to understand and apply it.

This book also features a forty-five-minute audio program entitled "Opening the Heart," in which Pema Ch#65533;dr#65533;n offers in-depth instruction on tonglen meditation, a powerful practice that anyone can undertake to awaken compassion for oneself and others.
