I began reading it and enjoyed the opening stories. But, I couldn't read it like a normal book and got exhausted after a couple of pages. Definitely take a line to line approach when reading this and be ready to reflect and meditate on what you're reading
To the person who is curious about this book, I would say come honest. Be in the position to look at your own life, rather than blaming others. Knowing within that divinity- that which is greater than all of us- runs in you. Why do I say this? This book is very direct, much like the work with “wheel of sharp weapons striking at the heart of the foe”. The foe is inside, controlling our thoughts and actions. Reading material like this has helped me observe and understand my reactions to external situations and circumstances.
On page 27 of this book, it reads, “(for example), one does not need to have the taste of sugar explained by someone else. Not understanding this (intrinsic awareness) even Panditas can fall into error.”
This book is full of koan, and gnostic awareness. It is not a beginner’s book, and for that I am giving it a 4 rating. Given time for a full digestion of this deeply personal and profoundly meaningful material may upgrade that to a 5. Namaste.
