One of the best manuals for meditation,
This review is from: Turning the Mind into an Ally (Paperback)
In the footsteps of his late father Chogyam Trungpa who was instrumental in introducing Tibetan Buddhism to the West, Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche -who has been living in the US since he was 8- adapts timeless wisdom for westerners' frames of mind. He teaches directly in English, and every word is perfectly in its place.
A gradual approach to meditation without the folklore of Tibet but with the charisma and the luminosity of a Tulku, a real Boddhisattva.
A litterary jewel to read again again, both for beginners and seasoned meditators.
