The Seven Mind Trainings are presented in the text of the Precious Vase, Instructions on the Base of Santi Maha Sangha, by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu. The 7th of these, is the training of the mind by means of meditative stability
of the state beyond thought. 

The three types of practices in the 7th lojong are:
• Training in the state beyond thought by means of pleasure and emptiness
• Training in the state beyond thought by means of clarity and emptiness
• Training in the ultimate nature of phenomena completely beyond thought

“Among all the series of mind trainings used as the base practices in Ati Dzogpa Chenpo, the seven mind trainings, from the texts of Dzogchen Nyingthig, are distinguished because they are easier for beginners to apply than those of other systems and at the same time more effective.
The swift and deep way of Vajrayana has methods that, by controlling the activity of the karmic prana tied to inhalation and exhalation, directly enable one to recognize the wisdom of the natural state without relying on the methods of meditative stability that entail lengthy training using reasoning and the next of concepts, like in the lower vehicles.”
