“This anthology of some of the greatest scholar-saints of Tibet makes absolutely clear that Dzogchen, Mahamudra, and Madhyamaka practices come to the same point of realization. This is a great contribution to the understanding of Rimé and a wonderful translation.”
—Ringu Tulku, author of The Ri-Me Philosophy of Jamgön Kongtrul the Great
“Among the wealth of precious texts translated from Tibetan, Adam Pearcey’s Beyond the Ordinary Mind stands out. Here is a wisely chosen collection of instructions from some of the most eminent masters of recent times, clarifying crucial points related to the nature of mind and the union of emptiness and appearances—a book to be cherished, especially by those who aspire to deepen their understanding of Buddhist practice.”
—Matthieu Ricard, author of Enlightened Vagabond: The Life and Teachings of Patrul Rinpoche
Beautiful. Meaningful. A rich array of key texts that carry us past the limitations of ordinary mind. These works are clear portals to the Great Middle Way, to the heart of Dzogchen, touching also on Mahāmudrā, and displaying an open, non-biased perspective. This readable translation brings new access to some of the greatest and most original minds of the last two centuries in Tibet.
—Anne C. Klein, translator of Khetsun Rinpoche’s Strand of Jewels: My Teachers’ Essential Guidance on Dzogchen
