Review

."..extremely clear and detailed"--Shambhala Sun

"This explication of the dream and sleep practices becomes a window on the entire teachings of Tibetan Tantra and Dzogchen. I enjoyed this book immensely...powerfully and beautifully presented." Martin Lowenthal, co-author of Opening the Heart of Compassion

"A detailed guide to using our night-lives for awakening: thought-provoking, inspiring, and lucid." Stephen LaBerge, Ph.D., author of Lucid Dreaming

"A highly useful manual to initiate one into dream and sleep yoga" D.R. Chaudhry, The Tibet Journal

."..extremely clear and detailed" Shambhala Sun

"The result of these practices is greater happiness and freedom in both our waking and dreaming states.... [I]mparts powerful methods for progressing along the path for liberation." The Indian International Journal of Buddhist Studies

"This is an appealing book, not only for Buddhist dream yoga practitioners, but for anyone interested in the whole area of lucid dreaming or dream work. The Tibetan syllables and the places they are to be visualized within the body are clearly illustrated; the practical instructions are well placed within a theoretic framework; and the entire work has the flavour of direct oral teaching from an expert." Angela Sumegi, The Tibet Journal

"The most illuminating book on this topic to appear to date." J. Marvin Spiegelman, Ph.D.

"Using clear concepts, illuminating images and metaphors, and effective practices, Rinpoche transmits a comprehensive, profound view of the teachings that lead to realization of our true nature." Martin Lowenthal, author

"This book gives detailed instruction for dream yoga, including foundational practices done during the day. In the Tibetan tradition, the ability to dream lucidly is not an end in itself--rather it provides an additional context in which one can engage in advanced and effective practices to achieve liberation. Dream yoga is followed by sleep yoga, also known as the yoga of clear light. It is a more advanced practice similar to the most secret Tibetan practices. The goal is to remain awake during deep sleep when the gross conceptual mind and the operation of the senses cease. Most Westerners do not even consider this depth of awareness a possibility, yet it is well-known in Tibetan Buddhist and Bon spiritual traditions.The result of these practices is greater happiness and freedom in both our waking and dreaming states. The Tibetan Yogas of Dream and Sleep imparts powerful methods for progressing along the path to liberation. A detailed guide to using our night-lives for awakening: thought-provoking inspiring and lucid."--Stephen LaBerge, PhD, author of Lucid Dreaming

Format: Paperback
Even though this book is about dream and sleep Yoga it contains one of the best - non-technical, non dogmatic explanations of karma I have ever read. It also has a great explanation of non-duality. The entire book is written in an exceptionally clear manner with wonderful explanations and a great glossary. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

For those who like to travel but can't afford it ,this is a fantastic book to understand that even the physical traveler doesn't go anywhere if their mind is a sedentary one!

There are many books on dream yoga on the market. However, this one is the only one, that I know, that also deals with sleep yoga, the state of consciousness beyond dreaming.
Metaphysics is a difficult subject to write about. Tenzin Wangyal is to be congratulated in writing so clearly, originally and authentically. This is no dry book with only theories, but comes from a man who was born for the role. It carries many personal anecdotes to illustrate his eminently practical approach.

Format: Paperback
Even for a seasoned lucid dreamer like myself, this book was highly useful in offering traditional Tibetan practices for lucid dream induction, as well as various suggestions for activities to attempt within a fully lucid dream. However, what is most amazing about this book is its instructions for abiding as the pure, empty Awareness (rigpa) that is our true Self. As a Zen Buddhist, I am quite familiar with maintaining this "mirror-mind," but I usually cannot maintain it for very long, and I've never held it past the dream stage, into deep dreamless sleep. The practices in this book are helping me to change all that. Maintaining meditation practice during sleep--literally 24 hours a day--accelerates things profoundly. When the gross, manifest world of spacetime has dissolved into the subtle realm of souls and dreaming, and when even that realm has dissolved into Emptiness, your truest self shines forth clearly as the one and only Mind behind all illusory manifestation. Truly, the awareness within you that is right now reading these words is the Buddha. Your true nature is absolutely vast, silent, empty, blissful, and timeless Consciousness as Such--the source and substance of all that seems to exist. When you become identified with this Consciousness, your true Self, and not merely with the deluded, individual mind (or ego), you find yourself in a state of constant consciousness--never blinking, never fading, 24 hours a day--remaining completely "awake" even during dreaming and deep sleep. You'll have discovered your true Home--the Home you've never left, the Home you couldn't possibly leave, but a Home that you refused to admit you were in while you suffered for lifetimes in this silly dream.

there's some really profound stuff in here

it might not open a closed mind, but an open mind will welcome it

it isn't perfect, but there are some things written on a few pages that people wouldn't learn in a lifetime, and are to be cherished. My favourite bit is where it speaks of trying to solve greed by consumption is like trying to cure thirst by drinking salt water

can you read that thought and not buy it?

(if anyone is interested, I am an atheist, and don't believe anything supernatural)

The clarity of information in this book is a joy to read, along with practical exercises that enhance waking and sleeping experience. I recommend this book as a tool for greater understanding of the self. Learning about where our emotional responses come from to manifest as karmic traces, so that situations will continue to manifest if not cleared was a gift that I am very grateful for.
This book works on a physical level with the breathing exercises; on a spiritual level by seeing through illusion, and on a mental level with the psychology of how the mind works.
If you want to get down and dirty with stripping away social conditioning and awaken from the dream, this glimmer of hope can be your handmaiden on a journey of delightful self discovery.
