AbstractAt the beginning of this book, Kalu Rinpoche mentions the famed teacher Chogyam Trungpa, who brought the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism to the west in a very innovative way. Kalu Rinpoche says almost by way of apology that he's not into trying to adapt the material to the western mind too deeply, and he thinks it's most powerful to present these teachings in the more traditional context. So, if you really want to have a solid Tibetan Buddhism 102, written in an incredibly human style, and you think you can handle some of the more punk-rock aspects of Buddhism (like the vivid descriptions of the hell realms) then this is an amazing condensation of the most important, vital teachings of Tibetan Buddhism, presented in thier full profundity. However, if you just want to understand a little more about how the wisdom of Tibetan Buddhism could apply to your problems and inner struggles, it's probably a much better bet to get a book by Pema Chodron.
