Format: Paperback
Wisdom comes flowing through Mr Lows words like a fresh water stream. The practice of Dzogchen flies right into the face of the condition of striving to get somewhere and the confusion that may sometimes come with that in spiritual practice.
This book is about a fuller and fuller awareness of what is going on right now! James Low's obvious devotion to his teachers comes out in the text but also does his own authenticity. Its this authenticity applied to life today that I found most inspiring. He tackles things such as ethics, practice and being true to ourselves. Overall it as provided inspiration for looking into the moment and seeing that I and everyone else are free already.
I have reluctantly give this book 4 stars intead of 5 basically because of the some of the Tibetan practices that may seem a little strange. These are only there because of the context from which the text came from! If James low ever reads this review I would like to express my sincerest gratitude towards him and to his teachers!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Satinder K. Dhiman on 28 Aug. 2009
Format: Paperback
I am quite amazed at the level of understanding, depth, and precision of James Low's commentary on Nuden Dorje's original terma text entitled "The Mirror of Clear Meaning." One marvels at the fact that a book like this exists in print, especially when you consider that the teachings were given extemporaneously during a 5 day retreat. There is not a single line in these 160 pages that one can omit!

I found James Low's talks illuminating, penerating, and enlightening. One gets a crystal clear glimpse of the original naked presence of the true nature of our mind. All the keys to this primordial state are handed over quite casually and effortlessly. From preliminary practices to all the way to "experiencing" the true nature of mind, the instructions are presented in a manner suitable for the modern audience. The author has studied Tibetan Buddhism for last 30 years and it shows. Quite an amazing feat. Million Thanks Venerable Dr. James Low.

In Buddhism, a great emphasis is placed on having the right "view"--a deep understanding of the way the things really are. Right "view" in the final reckoning is about having no view at all, obtaining freedom from our mind's habitual tendency of concept-making.

For:

Existence and non-existence are extremes,
Purity and impurity are extremes as well,
Thus, having relinquished both extremes,
The wise do not dwell even in the middle.
~King of Samâdhi Sûtra

Since:

No doer of the deeds is found,
No one who ever reaps their fruits;
Empty phenomena roll on,
Dependent on conditions all.

~Visuddhimagga

Afterall,

There is neither creation, nor destruction,
Neither destiny, nor freewill.

A very inspiring commentary by a western teacher of dzogchen.
A must read for all students of dzogchen or anyone interested in non-duality.
