One of the very best books I've ever read about the Buddhist path. In plain English, this book gives you a deep and readable look at Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism, by way of the relaxed erudition and generous dash of humor that has earned Dzogchen Ponlop a well-deserved international audience. Recently re-released with a cover featuring the author's photograph.
