To Dispel the Misery of the World is out now!

The first book from Rigpa Translations, To Dispel the Misery of the World, is now available in all good bookshops around the world and as an e-book in various formats.

"Offered here is the pith advice on mind training according to the great vehicle. This is the path followed by all the buddhas and their children of the past, present, and future, the most profound instruction of the oral lineage, and the quintessence of the ocean of all the excellent teachings." —Ga Rabjampa  
"For anyone yearning to lead a saner and more altruistic life in these troubling times, the practice of lojong, or ‘training the mind’ in compassion, is a simply priceless tool. With its unforgettable slogans and profound meditations, this essential guide to lojong practice was written by Ga Rabjampa—an outstanding Tibetan Buddhist master of the fifteenth century, and recommended by Khenpo Appey Rinpoche, one of my own teachers. Here, in a remarkably lucid and accessible translation, we are given radical and timeless instructions for discovering and developing the wisdom and compassion that our world needs so very, very urgently today."—Sogyal Rinpoche, author of The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying 
"Reading Ga Rabjampa's commentary helps us realize that love, compassion, and kindness are not mere abstract good wishes but are far more rich and profound."—Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche, author of What Makes you Not a Buddhist
