B. Alan Wallace has authored, translated, edited, and contributed to more than forty books on Tibetan Buddhism, science, and culture. With fourteen years as a Buddhist monk, he earned a BA in physics and the philosophy of science and then a PhD in religious studies. After teaching in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara, he founded the Santa Barbara Institute for Consciousness Studies to explore the integration of scientific approaches and contemplative methods.
"The increasing popularity of the Lojong or Mind Training teachings in Western Buddhism would seem to indicate a growing maturity among practitioners. Therefore, we welcome this new edition of Alan Wallace's teachings on the Seven-Point Mind Training, wherein he presents a clear and insightful commentary on this precious root text by Geshe Chekawa." --Tenzin Palmo, author of Into the Heart of Life "When chaos seems to surround you, this book steers you on a clear path filled with kindness and compassion. The Seven-Point Mind Training is one of my favorite texts." --Thubten Chodron, author of Buddhism for Beginners and Cultivating a Compassionate Heart "The techniques advocated by Wallace have more immediacy than ever. This book, though rich in Tibetan wisdom, is written in a clear, concise, informative, and entertaining manner for easy assimilation into the Western mindset." --Ash Journal of Experimental Spirituality "Alan Wallace is one of the great Western Buddhist thinkers of our day." --Howard Cutler, coauthor with H. H. the Dalai Lama of The Art of Happiness
