"Sarah Harding's fascinating account of the literature surrounding Niguma, heiress of unimaginable qualities, provides a rare glimpse into the life of a legendary female practitioner who traces the source of her wisdom lineage directly to Vajradhara the epitome of awakening. The collected works and biography are gems of insight into the spiritual journey of this elusive figure whose realization culminates in the perfection of timeless awareness and an illusory rainbow body. Deftly written, the account is a treasure trove of information about tantric practices and attainments focused especially on the nature and power of illusion. Harding's attempts to separate the flesh-and-blood woman from the idealized dakini make for an engaging, often amusing read for neophytes and experienced practitioners alike. Of special relevance to those who happen to be women this time around."—Karma Lekshe Tsomo, editor of Buddhism through American Women's Eyes --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

The translator, Sarah Harding, has been doing this kind of work for a long time. I am not able to compare her work to the Tibetan original, but as an English text, this one is easy to read. She finds interesting ways to express unfamiliar ideas. I have had many oral teachings and read many books over the years concerning Tibetan Buddhism and its practices. This text keeps my attention and does not drop into familiar channels (the same thing said in the same way as other texts). In other words, the text seems fresh and keeps my interest.
This is the second time I have bought this book. The first time I thought it was way over my head and I gave it to a teacher. I'm not sure I'm any better equipped to read it now, but I feel closer to my Shangpa heritage & I want to become more familiar with Niguma, one of the founders of the tradition. I guess my imperfect understanding of the material is the best I can do.
