Книга не для новичков, а для тех, кто более-менее имеет опыт исследования буддийской Дхармы на практике, особенно учения дзогчен.

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.
