"Crystal Cave" Revised and Reprinted

Post by Silent Bob » Fri Nov 02, 2012 4:57 pm

Erik Schmidt's anthology, with a new title ("Perfect Clarity"), additional chapters and without the previous restriction, is once again available after long being out of print.

Looks great, but are you sure this was Crystal Cave? Wasn't there something by Longchenpa in it?
Although many individuals in this age appear to be merely indulging their worldly desires, one does not have the capacity to judge them, so it is best to train in pure vision.

It is in fact CC. Erik said that he made a few changes in the content so it could be offered without restriction.

Seems like the first teaching in Crystal Cave is removed,"The Treasure of the Lotus C'rystal Cave, the direct instructions of Sri Singha", everything else seems to be there including at least one pretty fantastic teachings of Sechen Gyaltsab, Dilgo Khyentses root Guru, that wasn't in the original book.

I found CC. Seems there's actually a bunch of stuff removed though I don't know what the criteria is/was. In any case Perfect Clarity still looks great.

This is available in Treasures From Juniper Ridge though.
