"Analysis of the debate over mahāmudrā between Sa skya pas and Bka' brgyud pas; contains much useful information on and extracts from the writings of Sgam po pa and Zhang tshal pa" (Roger R. Jackson, “Mahāmudrā,” in Encyclopedia of Religion, ed. Lindsay Jones, 2nd ed. (Detroit: Macmillan Reference USA, 2005), vol. 8, p. 5601).

Here is a practical Buddhist Guidebook that offers techniques for developing a truly compassionate heart in the midst of everyday life. For centuries, Tibetans have used fifty-nine pithy slogans - such as "A joyous state of mind is a constant support" and "Don't talk about others' shortcomings" - as a means to awaken kindness, gentleness, and compassion. While Tibetan Buddhists have long valued thses slogans, recently they have become popular in the West due to such books as 'Start Where You Are' by Pema Chödrön and 'Training the Mind' by Chögyam Trungpa. This edition of 'The Great Path of Awakening' contains an accessible, newly revised translation of the slogans from the famous text 'The Seven Points of Mind Training'. It also includes illuminating commentary from Jamgon Kongtrul that provides further instruction on how to meet every situation with intelligence and an open heart.
