Banyen's Description: 

Originally appearing in The Compassion Box, the lojong cards featured in this boxed set have been used and cherished by many Buddhist practitioners and spiritual seekers of all sorts for years. Now these popular cards are available in a stand-alone format, priced to appeal to gift givers and impulse buyers. Lojong is a classic set of Buddhist teachings or slogans from the Tibetan tradition for cultivating positive qualities in one's life, such as compassion, fearlessness, altruism, and happiness. And interest in this practice has been growing—originally popularized in the West with such books as Training the Mind and Cultivating Loving-Kindness and Start Where You Are.

The 59 beautifully designed cards offer a lojong slogan on one side with commentary by Pema on the reverse to clarify and strengthen the practice. The cards can be displayed at work or at home for guidance and inspiration throughout the day. Packaged with the cards is a card stand and a few extra cards to introduce the practice—to explain how the cards can be used to awaken wisdom and compassion amid the challenges of daily life.

Pema’s commentaries on the reverse of each card offer her uniquely accessible insights on how to make the teachings really workable in one’s life. It will make for a perfect gift to anyone seeking spiritual inspiration, both Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.
