Reviews

"Zen Master Norman Fischer teaches a fascinatingly powerful Tibetan system of mind training with his characteristic Zen-like simplicity and artful clarity. Norman shows once again why he is one of the most admired Zen teachers in America."-Chade-Meng Tan, Google's Jolly Good Fellow, author of Search Inside Yourself: The Unexpected Path to Achieving Success, Happiness (and World Peace)


"Norman Fischer brings a fresh perspective to the profound Tibetan Buddhist manual of lojong, or mental training. With down-to-earth clarity, he applies its 59 pithy practices to the challenges of modern life. With repetition, these practices gradually change one from the inside out. His writing is direct, penetrating, and powerful, with the authenticity and impact that comes from a great teacher, as he shows readers how to develop resilience and compassion, strength with heart."-Rick Hanson, PhD, author of Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom


"Norman Fischer has illuminated Atisha's lojong slogans with the depth of his own Zen koan practice, infused with his savvy, no-nonsense heart. The result is stunning-a fresh slant on Tibetan compassion teachings, making them universal and now."-Acharya Judith Simmer-Brown, Naropa University, author of Dakini's Warm Breath: The Feminine Principle in Tibetan Buddhism
