6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By whiltz@mindspring.com on April 11, 1999
Format: Paperback
This book is probably not as good as I think it is, but I have been swayed by my love of the beautiful root text on which it is based, the prayer "Aspirations for Mahamudra", from the Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. The commentary on that root text, which forms the main body of this book, is at times overly contorted in its writing, and overly filled with supportive scriptures, such that the thread of meaning and the development of knowledge towards which one is tending is almost lost. With a greater deal of effort than is probably required, one can follow the flow of ideas, but it could be much better done, more "user friendly", and I think that those unfamiliar with Mahayana Buddhist teachings about the ultimate nature of reality might especially have a hard time wading through this book. However, having said that, the underlying beauty of the subject matter is so sublime, so profound, that this criticism seems almost silly, and the effort was well worth it for me.

Format: Paperback
Prior review is right on the money. The root text is beautiful and, if one has had prior Mahamudra teachings, very concise and to the point. The commentary is generally vague and the supporting quotations less than enlightening--frequently more of an apologetic than a commentary. It does, occasionally, elucidate a valuable and interesting point--usually not covered in the root text. Somewhat disappointing overall. Unfortunately, I read the review after having read the book.
