Ngakma Nor’dzin explores the sutric teaching of ‘The Four Thoughts that Turn the Mind to Practice’ as vividly relevant to our everyday lives: the extraordinarily precious opportunity to live as an honourable human being; the experience of impermanence that pervades our existence as an opportunity to awaken; the emotional and psychological patterning which dominates our lives; and the seemingly endless cycle of dissatisfaction in which we imprison ourselves. This clear, direct and incisive commentary will be enjoyed equally by those who are new to Buddhism as well as experienced practitioners. Each chapter ends with a series of questions and answers which are both pragmatic and inspirational.
The Four Thoughts teach us everything we need to know to be authentic practitioners. We can embrace the gentleness, kindness, and immaculacy of the warrior. We can embrace the dynamic energy, fierceness, and directness of the warrior. We can realise the potential of non-dual view on a moment by moment basis.

Such a joy to read about the sutric teachings explained in the vigorous and clear language of Dzogchen. These teachings are accessible even for newcomers to Buddhism, yet they reflect the highest wisdom of Vajrayana teachings.
