"Renowned Tibetan Buddhist master H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche offers Dharma teachings drawn from an array of subjects. Sharp, forthright, direct—this work is a treasure of heart advice."     ~Tricycle

"As the Great Guru has said, 'My view is higher than the sky, but my attention to actions and their results is finer than flour.' So don’t go around claiming to be some great Dzogchen meditator when in fact you are nothing but a farting lout, stinking of alcohol and rank with lust!"
