5.0 out of 5 stars Pith instructions for meditating on the nature of mind, 19 May 2009
This book is a wishfullfilling jewel for advanced dharma practioners in Vajrayana Buddhism, both in the Nyingma and Karma Kagyu traditions.
The basic teaching is that there is no samsara apart from thought.
That thoughtfree present wakefulness is liberation. The great master Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche gives pith instructions on our way to present wakefulness.

This book is quite advanced and i wouldn't recommend it as a starter. First one needs to meet an authentic dharma teacher, follow his instructions, and then can deepen his understanding of Mahamudra and Dzogchen thanks to this amazing book.

A beautiful edition and great translation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book, 19 May 2009
Amazing book for Vajrayana Buddhist practitioners, both in the Nyingma and Karma Kagyu traditions. I warmly recommend this book, though it is also indispensable to meet with a living master and receive direct oral instructions from him. This book is quite advanced, not to be read as an introduction to Buddhism.
Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche's son, is one of the highest living lamas of our time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book !, 18 May 2009
Anyone interested in Tibetan buddhism and/or death and what comes after death should read this book, the first translation to English about the different bardo states or intermediary states : life, death, what's between death and rebirth, and rebirth again.

one who knows can get liberation :)
