For long-time practitioners, I bow.
This text is quoted frequently by great Mahayana masters and it provides a serene and flawless understanding of concepts like "Tathagatagarbha", "Eternity, Self, Purity" etc.
I love having this book in my collection, I got a cheap used version and I plan to spend a lot of time studying it! Definitely recommended as the "Uttara" or Highest most essence of the Mahayana philosophies!
I defy anyone to read this book and not feel that they wouldn't mind attaining perfect enlightenment. Be of the greatest possible benefit to all beings and do it without effort? - That has to be a state worth being in!! There is a catch though, there is no such state definable by our limited conventional logic.
I had many more questions at the end of this book than I came to it with, but that's one of the beauties of the Dharma - each question leads to the next and the next, until there are no more questions to ask, or indeed any desire to seek answers to anything.
Incredible value for such a profound and well produced book. A word of warning though - this book is in typical Tibetan teaching style, with a lot of repetition (I like to think of it as 'lots of useful revision'). Probably not an introductory text on the topic for someone new to Buddhist philosophy.

The book itself meets for 100% my expectation! Came in a hardcover version, clean and brandnew.
