Publisher's Synopsis
This book is a commentary on the Dalai Lama's the Inseperability of the Spiritual Master and Avalokiteshvara: A Source of All Attainments - a text on guru yoga written when His Holiness was only nineteen years of age. In the first part of this book Lama Yeshe explains the difference between the sutra path of rejecting delusion and the tantric path of using delusion. After explaining the Dalai Lama's text on merging with Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, Lama Yeshe also teaches on tantric mahamudra - transforming all appearances into Avalokitshvara, making every moment meditation, and how your own wisdom is your guru.

Reviews
"An intimate book, so clear and compassionate, you know you are listening to the unforgettable voice of Lama Yeshe, one of the great teachers of our time."       ~Sogyal Rinpoche

"A wonderful offering to serious students by one of the twentieth-century's great meditation masters."        ~Georg Feuerstein

Excerpt
"Mind and object of mind are completely interdependent. You cannot say there is just nothingness. Mind cannot exist without an object; there is no such consciousness. However, there are many different levels of objects, gross and subtle. At the subtlest level, you can almost say that there is no object, but there is an object. Emptiness, which is so subtle, is an object - not in the way we normally think of concrete objects, but in the sense of being something that the mind holds, or knows, that the mind meditates on. The mind cannot stand without an object."
