TBH, I'm not a huge fan of DKR (don't hate him, just don't particularly like his style) but for some reason I read his prefatory commentary and liked it.

Thanks for sharing.

I love this book. I am reading the commentary and so far it is amazing!

The illustrations are pretty cool too. Apparently they were done by the mysterious DALeast, who is “currently a human being.”

Human being with an amazing talent. those ilustrations give the book an extraordinary feeling. It is really weird and new just like the way the commentary is done. It is no lecture, it is not that much intelectual yet it is amazing in its informality. :D I might be over praising it but so far it is one of the greatest books about dharma I have ever read.

Thanks a lot for pointing this out, doesn't get much better than a free dharma book from DJKR.

Thanks for posting this. The text is certainly way above my and Perhaps it is still countless lifetimes before I get it but it increases devotion instantly to know there are such crazy things in the dharma. Masters-aya Namah!
