The footnotes themselves; or some of the twelve appendices of the book are worth the cost of the book by themselves. Appendices include The Six Limits and Four Modes which deal with explaining different levels of meaning. An appendix The Four Dhyanas and Formless States which deal with different levels of attention, dealing with such topics as learning and reflection, the remedy for discarding desire and disturbing emotions, the relation of states of concept and discernment to each of the dhyanas, etc..
If you are a beginner in meditation, or have less then 10 years of study and practice then this book is most definitely NOT for you, unless you are an extraordinary prodigy; or exceptionally brilliant, or good at sorting through and assimilating detail.Read more ›
The concise root text is amazingly sharp and inspiring. Still warm from the breath of the dakinis, as it is sometimes said. The commentary by Jamgon Kongtrul makes the difficult and subtle passages more easily available, and the elaborate notes with teachings from many other masters is full of interesting and clarifying details. There is also a quite large index.
I will read this book over and over again, and pray that Erik Pema Kunsang finishes the following volumes. Volume I is also great.
