Translator Erik Pema Kunsang has selected works by legendary
masters both ancient and modern. From the distant, mythic past come
teachings from Guru Rinpoche (also known as Padmasambhava), the tantric
master who established Vajrayana Buddhism in Tibet in the ninth century,
his consort Yeshe Tsogyal, and the famous yogis Milarepa (1040-1123),
and Longchenpa (1308-1363). More recent teachers included in this
collection are Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (1910-1991), and Khenpo Ganshar,
the root guru of Chogyam Trungpa, and Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche. The
writings are in a variety of forms reflecting the genius of each
contributor: chapters of detailed meditation instructions, inspired
poems, and parable-like stories.
