Recommended to Molly by: my sangha
I missed a couple of chapters, but my sangha just finished another read-through so I'll call it done. I know I'll be going through it again.
I don't know if I would recommend this for flat-out beginners, or for anyone used to reading only Zen texts. Some of it is very dense, but there is a lot of brilliance and clarity too. It's okay to skip around by chapter; you don't have to read it cover-to-cover.

Chagdud Rinpoche's oral teachings are gathered in this precious volume. It's disguised as an introduction to Buddhism but contains important teachings for all students of the teachings of the Buddha, no matter what their level of attainment. A must read.

An intimate look into the life of one of the last Tibetan Lamas coming out of Tibet. Great story of minds flying and coming to the U.S.

Good to read, especially borrowed from a old good friend that met the author personally in Tres Coroas Temple, RS, Brazil.
