The first thing i noticed after i started reading this book was how poetic it was...it kind of reminded me of Chogyam Trungpa. With each chapter he presents a topic then proceeds to comment from every concievable angle. While the student familiar with Vajrayana's more secret practices will understand his allusions, he certainly presents his topics in such a way that they apply to everyone. An exhilerating read.
This is an interesting one. Written in a very unique voice, with a distict sense that many of the words in this book were made-up solely for this book, and may never be used again. The author is one of the sons of the late Dudjom Rinpoche, a massive figure in modern nyingma. Thinley Norbu does much here to break-up some of the notions the reader may have about spirituality, and does it in an almost psychedelic way, what with the plethora of... how to say, -he talks to you directly, from what seems a very spacious and conscious (read: realized?) perspective. Very personal, this book. I think a generous gift from a low-profile but highly developed teacher. Interested?
