i love reading Tulku Urgyen the wisdom shines through the words so it is great support though sometimes gets bogged down and complicated by all the Tibetan Buddhist terminology like Dharmakaya Shambogakaya Nirmanakaya kaya this kaya that and other really visualization oriented language when i am not that deep in Vajrayana practice to know what dude is talking about! keep it simple, stupid. (me is stupdi not Tulku Urgyen) so i am starting back at the fundamentals.

Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche ((Tibetan: སྤྲུལ་སྐུ་ཨོ་རྒྱན་རིན་པོ་ཆེ་, Wylie: Sprul-sku O-rgyan Rin-po-che, where "Rinpoche" is an honorific meaning "Precious One," not a surname) was a Tibetan Buddhist Lama of the Kagyü and Nyingma schools, and a teacher of Dzogchen. He is most widely known in the West through the works of Erik Pema Kunsang and Marcia Binder Schmidt.
