Whispered Teachings of the Bodhisattvas

“For anyone yearning to lead a saner and more altruistic life in these troubling times, the practice of lojong, or ‘training the mind’ in compassion, is a simply priceless tool.”—Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying

“Reading Ga Rabjampa's commentary helps us realize that love, compassion, and kindness are not mere abstract good wishes but are far more rich and profound.”—Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, author of What Makes you Not a Buddhist

“The marvelous commentary translated so eloquently here by Adam Pearcey was written in the fifteenth century by Ga Rabjampa, the founder of Dezhung Rinpoche's Tharlam Monastery in eastern Tibet. None of Ga Rabjampa's writings were available until just a few years ago, and now I find that several of the most moving visualizations on 'exchanging oneself for others' that Rinpoche taught me thirty years ago from memory (and which are not in other commentaries) are from this work. This little book is a real gem.”—Cyrus Stearns, author of Hermit of Go Cliffs

“The works of Ga Rabjampa deserve to be better known, and this eloquent translation makes a valuable contribution.”—Andrew Quintman, Yale University, translator of The Life of Milarepa
