Je Rinpoche on Guhyasamāja tantra

Post by Nicholas Weeks » Fri Aug 16, 2013 12:42 am

In 2010 Robert Thurman headed up a translation of the Five Stages commentary by Je Rinpoche. Then in March of 2013 Gavin Kilty came out with another translation.

Any students or practitioners who have compared the two? If yes, what are the differences between the two versions?

No, I am not going to practice or suggest others practice based on a book; just wondering about accuracy & quality of the two translations.

Relax, don’t worry about all the problems of samsara. Everything is relative. But try to be present.

Thanks Malcolm - if a pdf of Kilty's ever appears, let me know.
