This is a really wonderful collection of poetry. Flipping through these pages proved to be a most rewarding experience. I can not say that it will replace Whitman and Dickinson in the classroom but it is a sweet volume of Tibetan verse nevertheless. I had read Warriors Path To Enlightenment and was familiar with Trungpa through his friendship with Allen Ginsberg. This purchase was a whimsical choice and it has been duly rewarded. The poems are honest and heartfelt. There are little pearls of zen wisdom as well as some that bear the influence of Ginsberg and of Jack Kerouac. A poem like Missing The Point does anything but. I was enthralled by poems like Completely Intoxicated By You and I Miss You So Much. Trungpa seemed to possess a certain purity of thought that I admire in poetry. I would recommend this book to poetry afficianados as well as persons with an interest in Asian arts and culture. It is a fine collection.
