Summary, etc.:
"Tibetans revere the mind training (lojong) tradition for its practical and down-to-earth advice. The key to happiness is not a life free of problems but rather the development of a mind capable of transforming any problem or situation into a cause of happiness. Translated and introduced by the Dalai Lama's own translator, Thupten Jinpa, Essential Mind Training contains eighteen individual works, including such renowned classics as Eight Verses on Mind Training and The Seven-Point Mind Training."--Page [4] of cover.
