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.

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.
