"An invaluable guide for Mahamudra practitioners on how to look at the mind, it is clearly laid out so that the instructions are easy to recall and put to use. For those committed to ascertaining the mind's true nature, checking their experience, and refining and extending their insight, there is certainly no more systematic or comprehensive approach than can be found in this extraordinary set of instructions."--Indian International Journal of Buddhist Studies
