Gyatrul Rinpoche for their relevance to the modern-day spiritual aspirant who must combine and balance quality practice time, work time and rest time in the course of a busy day.

Finally, the teachings on dream yoga guide the practitioner in the conscious control of the dream state as well as the bardo state at the end of life. Complementing each section is a dynamic and practical commentary by Ven. Gyatrul Rinpoche specially tailored to the needs of Western students. The result is an indispensable handbook for practitioners at all levels of experience.
