This text is profound. A bit of a warning, this is a wonderful text to read very slowly with a Dharma friend or with instructions from a Dharma teacher. The translator has such a gift in bringing these teachings to life into English. Highly recommended for those who have had exposure to some of the basics of Buddhism. All in all, "Dharma gems in a necklace of compassion and wisdom."
