Geshe Rabten's autobiography
Account of Geshe Rabten's retreat, his progress, the insights and realizations he attained, and the advice given himn by his teachers.
The most fundamental text of the Mind Training practice, and also probably the most powerful. Composed by DharmaRakshita, Atisha's Indonesian teacher, around 1000 A.D. With commentary by Geshe Dhargyey. Explains with great clarity how our selfishness, paranoia, and self-absorption return to us like a rock thrown straight up into the air.
