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 skandhas
but stainless wisdom is Buddha.
In knowing ever serene—
I take refuge therein.

Yes. see here Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra (vol 1) and Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra (vol 2)
今以佛眼觀之佛與眾生同住解脫之床。無此無彼無二平等。
Now, observing with the eye of the Buddha, both the Buddha and ordinary beings are in the same liberated state. There is neither this nor that: there is only non-duality and identity.

Śrī Singha said to Padmasambhava:
Since buddhas and sentient beings are inseparable and the same, it is necessary to respect all sentient beings as being on the same level with the buddhas. Can you?
