Agreed. This subject matter is better served rendered into the clear & sparing prose characteristic of BITL rather than any bloating due to attempts to make the language flowery, poetic or "modern".

It looks like the price on Amazon has dropped down to $100 again, so those of us who paid $120 for the preorder should get the difference refunded. Nice.

Also, looking forward to the book launch today!
Neither person nor skandha
but unstained wisdom is buddha.
In its knowing, ever serene—
I go for refuge therein.

Fantastic, thank you! If I am still employed in October I will get it.
To offer care and affection to sentient beings
In desperate situations who lack protection
Brings just as much merit as the meditation
On emptiness with compassion as its core—
So it has been said by glorious Lord Atisha.

I have hit refresh on the order page on Amazon.com a good number of times today, hoping it's shipped, but ... so far no go. Well, estimate says I'll receive it September 7-12 so... Need to be more patient!

Excuse my ignorance, are these the only 2 of the 17 tantras that have yet been translated into English?
