Availability:: Usually Ships in 2 to 3 Business Days

The great nineteenth century master, Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Thaye, placed the "Four Thoughts That Turn the Mind" at the pinnacle of his explanation of Buddhist philosophy. They encapsulate the major teachings of Buddhism into four simple phrases: the precious human birth; the impermanence of phenomena; karma as cause and effect; and the defects of samsara. Contemplation of these four constitute the preliminary practices and they accompany meditation practice throughout our lives.
The Thirty-Seven Practices of a Bodhisattva is a classic treasury of Mahayana advice by the Tibetan Buddhist master Ngulchu Thogme. In these 37 four-line verses, Thogme describes how a bodhisattva, a being committed to attaining enlightenment for the benefit of suffering beings, would train in the path of sacred selflessness. Five talks on one MP3 CD.
  • MP3CD Recordings
    MP3CDs look like ordinary CDs, but contain compressed audio files. While a regular audio CD holds a maximum of only 80 minutes of recorded audio, an identical-looking MP3CD can easily hold the audio files from an entire weekend or even week-long teaching. MP3CDs can be played in a computer and/or the audio files can be downloaded into an iPod or similar device. MP3CDs may also be played on a portable MP3CD player. Most ordinary CD players, such as the CD player in most older cars (roughly 2005 and earlier), will not play MP3CDs. Many but not all cars 2006 or later do have MP3-capable CD players. Any car or home stereo CD player that is capable of playing an MP3CD will have MP3 or MP3-WMA clearly marked on the front of it.
  • The MP3CDs available for sale on this web site are all clearly labeled and packaged in a clear case. The audio files on them have proper ID3 tag information, which means that on a computer, iPod or similar device the audio files will display (and can be searched by) Album (Title of teaching), Song (Talk number within a teaching) and Artist (Teacher).
