I have just collected my copy of this from the bookshop.

I will share a few thoughts (nothing as important as a "book review") later when I have finished reading it.
I'm sure that quite a few of you would have read this also.

I have finished that in two sittings.

I found it to be great for a beginner, and it explained a lot of the system. I now have more pegs to hang ideas from - the new terminology and structure had me a bit confused before reading this book.

Very helpful :namaste:

This book is by far the best overview of Dzogchen available in the English language if you ask me.

The sharing of the Dharma is a beautiful thing
I'm sure there is someone who will be overcome with generosity and share the teachings with me.
I know they will,
won't they?

Due to the kindness and generosity of others, I started reading "The Crystal" last night
All I can say so far...
What a gem!

It is a wonderful book, I would have to say that it made an incredible impression upon me when I read it.
