The book is a compendium of public talks given during the 1990’s. Three weekend intensives are included in their entirety as are several single talks. The talks all point at the ultimate meaning as taught in Mahamudra and Dzogpa chenpo but also contain an enormous amount of Tibetan Buddhist teaching of more general interest. The book will of course be of special interest to Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s students. It will also be of special interest to students of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche and also Shambhala because a number of the talks were given at Dharmadhatus, now Shambhala Centres. The talks span the whole period of the 1990’s and have been selected by Lotsawa Tony not only for their dharma content but also to show the development of Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s teaching style during that time. Thus it is also a historical record that shows the development of Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s teaching style through the 1990’s.

The talks in this book were chosen specifically to complement a second book, called Ground, Path, and Fruition, displayed further down this page.
