Product description


Students' Reactions to Not for Happiness

"Having a map of the path that shows where each practice is headed helps me to see what each stage is preparing me for. Even the chapters that at first didn't seem relevant to my current practice contained such great gems of teaching that they turned out to be extremely relevant and very helpful."--Catherine Fordham

"To me, this book is like the world's best kind of GPS! I feel that by following its guidance, even though I am not a skilful driver, I will have the confidence to drive through my Ngöndro practice--and may even end up feeling quite good about it!"--Helena Wang
