    This book includes three classic texts in the Nyingma tradition on Mahayoga. The first two, by Rigdzin Jigma Lingpa and Patrul Rinpoche, are oft cited as two of the most significant texts on the topic in our tradition. I found them hard going, and I've got a pretty good background in Mahayoga. The third, is much easier going and very helpful in the Nyingma approach to the symbolism of common sadhanas. There really isn't much in English yet for us practitioners in this tradition, so I do recommen This book includes three classic texts in the Nyingma tradition on Mahayoga.

There really isn't much in English yet for us practitioners in this tradition, so I do recommend it pretty strongly, but maybe start by reading the last chapter and then work your way backwards. This is not a good book for beginners, I wouldn't recommend it for them. Hence, the three stars.

    Excellent collection of texts that should prove quite useful to any students of Tibetan Buddhism engaged in deity yoga. The translation reads quite well also.
