While Mahamudra is a powerful practice for attaining realization, strong emotions obstruct progress on the path. The Seven Points of Mind Training, a relative bodhicitta practice brought to Tibet by Atisha, is very effective in working with emotions. Thrangu Rinpoche clearly explains these Seven Points which are presented in Jamgon Kongtrul Lodrö Thaye’s classic text, The Great Path of Awakening. In Rinpoche’s view, the combination of Mahamudra and Mind Training is an excellent balance of ultimate and relative bodhicitta practice that together offer a swift path to full realization.
