seven points of mind training
slogans studied at KsC and KDSC in NH
|At KSC in Barrington,
NH, we studied The Great Path of Awakening by Jamgon Kongtrul
(translated by Ken McLeod) in
2002. This classic 19th-century text is a commentary on the Seven Points
of Mind Training, which have come down to us from the 11th-century Indian
teacher Atisha via Chekawa Yeshe Dorje, a 12th-century Tibetan teacher of
the Kadampa Lineage.
In spring and summer 2003 and 2004, we studied a selection of the slogans at KDSC, our Portsmouth, NH, center. The slogans we have studied so far are listed below for review and practice. Some students review all the slogans periodically, while others focus on one slogan and work with it for one or more days or weeks.
More background, information and commentary on the slogans of the Seven Points of Mind Training may be found in The Great Path of Awakening by Jamgon Kongtrul, Training the Mind by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, and Start Where You Are by Pema Chodron.
