The true condition is beyond numbers. If we think in terms of an "individual being" this means that we are limiting, and consequently everything becomes complicated. If we want to understand, then we must not limit. - Chögyal Namkhai Norbu

I'm leaning towards the 1996 edition. But again, I'd like some feedback as to which is most preferred.

I read both of those a few years apart, and I don't remember many big differences. I read the older one as a hardback, so that was a nicer book in general. That's all I can remember. I don't think you'll go wrong with either.

The old Lama Kazi one would be really interesting to read, but the newer ones are the more renowned.

Thanks Tom! I just wanted to make sure they were similar copies. Been putting off this purchase for way too long.
