"A readable, accessible starting point for verbal understanding,
contemplation and meditative maturation. Connelly's clarity and
refreshing humility invite a wide range of practitioners into the
view and methods of the Consciousness-Only school."--Shosan
Victoria Austin, San Francisco Zen Center
"Through Connelly's luminous teaching, some of Yogacara's most vivid and inspiring innovations come to life...Newcomers and adherents to this lesser-known Buddhist school alike are lucky to have Connelly as an exceptional guide to the central themes of Yogacara."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
