    Didn't realize that was a full book-thingy. What's the word on it, or why do you recommend it?

    Read it only if it seems beneficial for you :-)

    Well that's what I was asking kinda, some synopsis about what the book/thingy is actually about so I know whether or not it would be. ;)

    No risk no fun :-) You could pass your last chance to enlightenment ;-)

    or one could say: When constant, merciless change becomes the expectation rather than the aversion, then the real journey finally begins.

    This is an interesting work by Ajahn Amaro.
    The foundations of Dzogchen are clearly present in the Pali nikayas.
    One of the most interesting examples in my opinion is the section on the internal and external elements in the Majjhima Nikaya.

    Yeah, if they wanted to confuse the one that said it... ? (somehow missed your point, but I just woke up soooo) ;)

    Downloaded that PDF, thanks.

    Longer read than I thought, but fully worth the time. :)
