"Amazing profiles and interviews with 12 contemporary women Tibetan Buddhist teachers, some Tibetan, many Western-born. They get into the details of the teacher/student relationship, their lives and practice."
"Pema Chodron offers instructions for getting started with meditation drawn from Tibetan Buddhism, along with insights for more advanced meditators. Straightforward and accessible, but grounded in Buddhist teachings."
"This has always been one of my favorite books for introducing Westerners to Tibetan Buddhism, because it is a travelogue through the monasteries of Ladakh, in which the author recounts his own spiritual journey."
"A bestseller, and based on the classic text the Tibetan Book of the Dead, this book introduces Tibetan Buddhist themes through the theme of dealing with death, hospice care, and the life/death transition."
"This book is written by Lama Tsultrim Allione, a premiere American women Lama in Tibetan Buddhism, and describes her adaptation of an ancient Tibetan practice for dealing with our 'inner demons'. Powerful and accessible for anyone."
"Tantric or Vajrayana Tibetan Buddhist practices involve yoga-like movements, breathing, and energy center (chakra) meditations, that are usually only taught in person by a qualified teacher. Few books are available for beginners. This is an excellent one though, from the Bon Buddhist tradition."
