Editorial Reviews

The Huffington Post
I would refer more serious students to examine for further study the amazing book, The Union of Bliss and Emptiness: Teachings on the Practice of Guru Yoga, by The Dalai Lama.
From the Publisher
"Compassion, intelligence, modesty, and wit—that wonderful, unarguable quality of clarity and love that radiates through the Dalai Lama’s words. . . . [He] is practically impish in his delight with inserting little jokes and wisecracks in the midst of his high tantric commentary. . . . Whether one browses, peruses, or studies this text, it’s certain some degree of transmission will twinkle its way from the heart of the Dalai Lama into our own precious mental continuums." —Independent Publisher
