    1. Though I couldn t help but chuckle cynically at his essay on conscious drinking, I got a lot out of this pithy collection of essays and transcribed talks This book was especially helpful in delineating what to expect when taking the refuge and bodhisattva vows, and it allayed some fears of mine and instigated others about what may lay in store as I pursue the Shambhala vajrayana path further.



    2. Chogyam Tringpa s books are unfathomable I could read the same title a million times and still find something newmething I missed before He understands human beings in the deepest way.






    3. Great book on what being a Shambhala Buddhist means Written in the typical Trungpa irreverent and practical style Loved it.
