Format: Paperback
Godrakpa Sonam Gyaltsen was a great Tibetan Buddhist master of the 12th century whose songs were a great influence on the early yogic traditions. In Hermit Of Go Cliffs: Timeless Instructions From A Tibetan Mystic, Cyrus Stearns provides an admirable translation of these tantric songs for the benefit of an English reading public. Hermit Of Go Cliffs is a very welcome and highly appreciated contribution to the growing library of Buddhist literature available to both the student and the non-specialist general reader seeking an appreciation of Tibetan Buddhism.

Format: Paperback
In Hermit Of Go Cliffs: Timeless Instructions From A Tibetan Mystic, Cyrus Stearns draws upon his impressive Tibetan scholarship to translate from the writings of Tibetan masters for the benefit of an English-speaking readership. This particular and remarkable compendium features "The Collected Songs of the Adept Godrakpa Who is Peerless in the Three Realms". The text is enhanced for students of Buddhism with illustrations, an informative introduction, notes on the translation, a bibliography, and an index. Hermit Of Go Cliffs is an invaluable, worthwhile, and much appreciation contribution to the expanding library of Buddhist thought and philosophy now available to western readers.

Format: Paperback
The Tibetan Culture is fading fast. It is vary wonderful that books like this exist to help spread thsi unique history. The religeous lineage of these people is so strong, nad yet due to chinese oppression is being lsot forever. I suggest this book to anyone involved in asian or religeous studies.
