Universal Compassion is a commentary to a twelfth-century text on training the mind, entitled Training the Mind in Seven Points, which was composed by the great Tibetan Bodhisattva, Geshe Chekhawa.

The supreme Dharma of training the mind (Tib. Lojong) is an unsurpassed method for controlling our mind, and reveals the principal path to enlightenment. There are many different sets of Lojong instructions, such as those contained in the One Hundred Practices of Training the Mind. The present text, Universal Compassion, explains how to put into practice the Lojong instructions given by Bodhisattva Geshe Chekhawa in his root text Training the Mind in Seven Points.

To have the opportunity to practice this precious and profound teaching is infinitely more meaningful than being given all the precious jewels in the world. If we understand how extremely worthwhile it is to read, listen to, study, contemplate, and engage in the practice of this very special Dharma, we will do so with great faith and a happy mind. – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
