What a wonderful book! A collection of writings by different masters, well translated and compiled by students of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, Erik Pema Kunsang and Marcia Binder Schmidt. The readings take you gradually along the path to awakening with clear concise teachings that leave no doubt.

This is a very beautiful book. I thank all the Deities, Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, and Great Masters for making this profound ocean of wisdom available to a common westerner. This instruction is very straightforward and cuts to the core of experiencing rigpa.
