Subtitle: An Oral Teaching by Gechen Sonam Rinchen
Translated by: Ruth Sonam
Softcover ~ 111 pages

This book contains instructions to free ourselves from the demon of self-concern based upon the spiritual writings known as lojong. The root text was written by the eleventh-century meditator Langritangpa. His Holiness the Dalai Lama refers to this work as one of the main sources of his own inspiration and includes it in his daily meditations.

"Among the many brilliant texts that Geshe Sonam Rinchen and Ruth Sonam have produced, this one explains in clear terms how to implement the essential practices of compassion, which are so difficult to integrate into one's daily life. What a treasure!" ~ Jeffrey Hopkins
