Publisher's Synopsis

The goal is to remain aware during deep sleep when the gross conceptual mind and the operation of the senses cease. Most Americans do not even consider this depth of awareness a possibility.

This book is best understood as a practice manual, a guide to the yogas of Bon-Buddhist traditions that use dreams to attain liberation from the dreaminess of ordinary life and use sleep to waken from ignorance. A main theme is that through practice we can cultivate greater awareness during every moment of life.


"This is an appealing book, not only for Buddhist dream yoga practitioners, but for anyone interested in the whole area of lucid dreaming or dream work. The Tibetan syllables and the places they are to be visualized within the body are clearly illustrated; the practical instructions are well placed within a theoretic framework; and the entire work has the flavour of direct oral teaching from an expert."     ~The Tibet Journal


"If we cannot carry our practice into sleep," Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche writes, "if we lose ourselves every night, what chance do we have to be aware when death comes? Look to your experience in dreams to know how you will fare in death. Look to your experience of sleep to discover whether or not you are truly awake."
