    1. « L'esprit est le grand assassin du réel. Que le disciple tue l'assassin. La compassion parle et dit : Peut-il y avoir de la joie quand toute vie doit souffrir? Serez-vous sauvé en entendant le monde entier pleurer?Que le fier soleil ne sèche pas une larme de souffrance avant que vous-même ne l'ayez essuyée de l'œil de celui qui souffre. L'élève doit retrouver l'état d'enfant qu'il a perdu avant que le premier son puisse vibrer à son oreille. Détruis en toi le souvenir des expérienc [...]

    2. Secret doctrines in this case means "oral tradition". Things that were not traditionally written down, but were passed on from teacher to student verbally. This is a collection of some of the most insightful writings that I have ever come across. It draws heavily from pre-buddhist bon tradition and contains extensive ad explicit instructions and details on techniques of lucid dreaming among other things. This is the real deal. I would say about half of it is translations of true, but run of the [...]

    3. This is a classic translation and part of a series of translations of Tibetan Buddhist texts published by W.Y. Evans-Wentz. The selection of texts present a coherent body of theoretical and practical aspects of religious praxis, especially the last third of the book which collects a number of tantric ritual texts.

    4. This book is once again excellent. A little confusing if you dont have back round knowledge of tibetan buddhism (which I had little) so I plan on re-reading this one in the future so I may better understand what they are talking about.

    5. Mind expanding information about the Chod/Aghora/short path. Read in conjunction with "Aghora I" by Svoboda. Great and terrifying.

    6. Very engrossing and well written. A must for anyone interested in the more esoteric side of yoga-consciousness.
