You Are the Eyes of the World (old edition)
New edition now also available: ISBN: 9781559393676
Just as the images on television are nothing more than light, so are our experiences merely the dance of awareness. Often we form attachments to, or feel enslaved by, these experiences. Their power fades as easily as the pictures vanish when the channel is changed, if we penetrate to the heart of reality—the light of the natural mind within everyone.
You Are the Eyes of the World presents a method for discovering awareness everywhere, in every moment. It does not discuss how to turn ordinary life off, or creating beautiful spiritual experiences. Instead it shows how to live within the source of all life, the unified field where experience takes place.
"The product of an inspired collaboration...a catching edition with Wright’s stunning photograph of Bodhnath stupa lit with light offerings at dusk in the cover...It sustains...the interest of the Tibetan and other specialist owing to the magnitude of Longchen pa’s contribution to Tibetan Buddhist literature and the timely relevance of his Don khrid to a living rDzogs chen commentarial tradition."—The Tibet Journal
"...text is clear and direct, and requires relatively little background in Indian, Tibetan, or Buddhist culture to understand. It shows how to live within the source of all life, the unified field where experience takes place."— The Beacon
