Humbling Sept. 21 2011
By Pau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An auspicious beginning: my new Kindle charging cord arrived yesterday, and this pre-ordered book arrived the moment I powered up.

This book glows with a deep wisdom. Knowing little about the author at first, I ordered it expecting it to be more of a personal history of the Maoist Gulag. Boy, was I was wrong. Rinpoche is a continuation of a long line of Tibetans who perfectly exemplify enlightened living: what he's lived and attained is the lesson here. Surrounded by 15 years of atrocities and blood, he many other lamas practice diligently and cultivate bodhichitta and understanding; in the midst of untold thousands of deaths, they still witness and celebrate rainbow bodies.

The earlier part of the book is a series of connected lectures, with Q&A at the end of the chapters. The author's direct style and command of the material easily kept me focussed on the underlying simplicity and unity of Dzogchen and Mahamudra, without using any over-my-head philosophical concepts. And the way to make that as easy to experience as it is to say , he adds, is to practice, practice, practice. He offers several mental exercises for developing and stabiizing rigpa, as well as this promise: "This may sound like a distant dream to you, yet if you train diligently it is definitely possible." and we don't have to do it in a concentration camp.

Adeu Rinpoche writes so effectively because, referring to Patrul Rinpoche, "when rigpa has been stabilized, then all activities will unfold as an expression of awareness ... even writing is brought out of the treasure mind of the dharmakaya." A treat for the reader.
An Enduring Source of Inspiration for me Sept. 4 2013

Full disclosure: Years ago I received teachings from Adeu Rinpoche. His reply to my question during the Q and A after his lecture helped me to make a big decision in my life. The book itself describes his experiences as a prisoner of the Chinese Communists for many years and how he was able to maintain his dharma practice.
