These oral instructions on mind training from the Mahayana that the glorious Lord Atisha passed down have been explained in many different ways, but the best of them all is the master Ja Chekawa’s commentary in seven points. In order that beginners can easily understand the meaning of its words, my tutor Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche has written this wonderful, elegant commentary in colloquial language that is easy to understand. I rejoice that KTD Publications is publishing it now. I hope and pray that the activity of this Dharma may expand without limits. – the 17th Karmapa, June 11, 2010, Buddhist year 2554
