The great master Atisha (982-1054) wrote The Jewel Garland while in Tibet in response to questions from his student Dromtonpa. It’s a short text belonging to the mind training, or lojong, tradition.
In beautiful poetic style, Atisha provides instructions on how bodhisattvas practice the path, and concludes his work by affirming that practicing according to this text will help us reach enlightenment. His advice is just as powerful and helpful today in our Western society as it was in Tibet.
Each verse shines by itself, but taken together they become a precious garland of jewels, a complete instruction on how to live a meaningful life with altruism and compassion. Behind every sentence of every verse is a wealth of spiritual insights, “food for thought” for years!
