Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The combination of topic, well-known authors, and accessible presentation of the material should make this an important book for practitioners. In Khetsun Sangpo, we meet Tibet's finest traditions of contemplative education, literary expression, and gentle courage. In Jeffrey Hopkins, we encounter an intrepid explorer and virtually peerless expositor of Tibetan Buddhist inquiry into the practical and profound. It is wonderful to read this record of their mutual interests and startling discoveries drawn from a collaboration that stretches over more than three decades."—Jules B. Levinson, PhD, Light of Berotsana Translation Group

"This collaboration is a valuable introduction to the concept of fundamental mind."—Tricycle
