Landmark, reissued

Famous book, a part of which was published several decades ago and I have heard was circulated in a form of photo copies. In many ways the original 67 pages are still too honest and there will be always some people connecting to the text and wandering why it does not attempt to flatter no one. A work requiring high degree of open mindedness because questions are asked (it is in a form of an interview) and Rinpoche gives long careful answers that are like poems, but are answers to real questions not presentations of wishful thinking.

Anyone looking for something that their narrow mind requires to feel good, could feel disappointed because this book comes from simple, sky-like mind and such a vastness looking back at us from the mirror like teacher could unsettle your comfort zones.

A legendary publication reissues by Shambhala with addition of three more parts that make for a hefty volume. A must read for all that consider Kyabje Thinley Norbu Rinpoche work important.
