"Lama Surya Das one of the foremost American lamas in the Buddhist tradition has been an integral part of Buddhism's surge in popularity and accessibility in recent years. He is an author, meditation teacher, poet, and founder of the Dzogchen Meditation Center. His many books include The Big Questions, Buddha Is as Buddha Does, Natural Radiance, and Awakening the Buddha Within."
"The entire book is pretty straightforward and accessible, even with limited knowledge of Buddhist jargon and practice. . . . Overall, this book will be of interest to anyone attracted to Vajrayana Buddhism, as well as those curious about religion, particularly comparative religious philosophy--it is fascinating how similar religions are when stripped of ceremonies and rules and reduced to simple philosophical theories. As such, it's a good read for all those seeking enlightenment, both intellectual and spiritual, via any path."--The Feminist Review
"The reader will find here in Nyoshul Khenpo's captivating personality and teachings, the embodiment of the advice he quotes from the nineteenth-century master Patrul Rinpoche."--Eastern Horizon
