Sub Title: Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche on Patrul Rinpoche's verses
Summary: In this book, two great Tibetan Buddhist masters of the nine­teenth and twentieth centuries challenge us to critically exam­ine our materialistic preoccupations and think carefully about how we want to spend the rest of our lives.

Detail: In this book, two great Tibetan Buddhist masters of the nine­teenth and twentieth centuries challenge us to critically exam­ine our materialistic preoccupations and think carefully about how we want to spend the rest of our lives. At the same time, they provide practical guidance in following the Buddhist path, starting from the most basic motivation and culminating in the direct experience of reality beyond the reach of conceptual mind. The root text is a masterful teaching in verse written in the nineteenth century by Patrul Rinpoche, one of the outstand­ing teachers of his day. In the accompanying commentary, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (1910-1991)-lineage holder of the Nyingma tradition, and one of the great expounders of the Dharma of our times-expands upon the text with his characteristic com­passion and uncompromising thoroughness. Patrul Rinpoche's fresh and piercing verses combined with Khyentse Rinpoche's down-to-earth comments make a concise whole that is unusu­ally complete in its scope.
