Review by thatguynate
An excellent guide to the philosophies and practices of some sects of Tibetan Buddhism as they relate to dream practice. Tenzing Wangyal Rinpoche draws upon the unbroken lineage of the Bon school of thought, explaining teachings that relate experiencing and guiding dreams as a tool for the general practice of spiritual attainment. The general idea is that by engaging in certain practices during waking life and just prior/during sleep one can not only advance spiritual practice in this life, but prepare oneself for the Bardo state between death and rebirth and increase the likelihood of breaking the cycle of reincarnation.Presented in a clear, logically sequenced and well referenced manner, the book has much to offer for the casual dreamer as well as the more dedicated spiritual practitioner. While some of the technical details may be confusing, possibly to the point of distraction or determent for those totally unfamiliar with dream practice or Buddhist philosophy, it is definitely valuable for anyone interested in either realm.
