There are times that I just sit back and wonder “What the hell am I doing reviewing this book?” I mean, seriously, walking from a Zen practice into a book on Mahamudra is like walking from a simple, focused and minimalistic sitting room into a room full of stoned Keibler Elves puking multi-colored streamers. Its like going from a Scotch on the rocks to a Mai-Tai laced with LSD. Its like strolling out of an accountant’s convention in WallaWalla Washington and falling smack-dab into Mardi-Gras.

Very helpful explanation of the links, steps, movement along the path. This will help ground and guide the practice. Likely not a book those new to Dharma will understand well, give it time.
