Universal Compassion is a book of practical instructions on increasing love and compassion, an ideal guide to the Mahayana Buddhist teachings on training the mind, step-by-step instructions on developing universal love and compassion in our daily life and, an essential advice on how to transform all life situations into opportunities for spiritual development. The supreme Dharma of training the mind (Tib. Lojong) is an unsurpassed method for controlling our mind, and reveals the principal path to enlightenment. There are many different sets of Lojong instructions such as those contained in the One Hundred Practices of Training the Mind. The present text, Universal Compassion, explains how to put into practice the Lojong instructions given by Bodhisattva Geshe Chekhawa in his root text Training the Mind in Seven points. The seven points are: The preliminary practices of training the mind; The main practice/training in the two bodhichittas; Transforming adverse conditions into the path to enlightenment; How to integrate all our daily practices; The measurement of success in training the mind; The commitments of training the mind; The precepts of training the mind. Geshe Kelsang provides us with an indispensable companion for our day-to-day life.
