A dream as a lifeime that lasts ten minutes in which we are unmindful of the dream framework, unmindful of having a waking life of having had other dreams, waking life in which we don't remember the dreams and cannot see situations for what they are, compulsively and constantly projecting onto people,situations etc., that we suffer like psychotics at the mercy of our delusions. Never heard anyone say it better. Excellent dharma talk.

Wallace's translation of Dudjom Lingpa's "gnas lugs rang byung" [dag snang ye shes drva pa las gnas lugs rang byung gi rgyud rdo rje'i snying po] will be one of the publications, finally. An unfinalized version of the translation has been circulating online for some years now, looking forward to this finalized version being available (the text requires a transmission no doubt, but nevertheless nice to see this coming out).

This is of course completely false.
Just look on TBRC, you can see that Dudjom Lingpa was a disciple of a very prominent 19th century Gelugpa master , 'jam dbyangs thub bstan nyi ma. http://www.tbrc.org/#!rid=P382" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;"

Ah interesting, so the book was originally published some time ago and this release next year will be a second edition? I saw on Wallace's site that his translation of the tantra was released in 2004(?) by Wisdom Publications, and the book was titled "The Vajra Heart" or "Vajra Essence". Though I figured the listing was a typo or an old entry which was never updated because I have never seen or heard of anyone having a hard copy book, and Wisdom Publications does not mention it. But the first edition was a limited release then perhaps?
