Book Review: Karma Chakme’s Mountain Dharma As Taught by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche, Volume 1

“No matter how many arrows you shoot at the sky, you can never really pierce it, because there is nothing there to be pierced.”

In this context, true nature of mind must be realized as sky, completely boundless and without form, unable to be pierced or changed.

Pure, naked, clear awareness.

When one comes to this realization and begins to cultivate confidence through practice, one creates unshakable armor around themselves that cannot be removed.

Every arrow of samsara will leave you unscathed and vanish without trace.

This book and many others were passed on to me by one of my Dharma teachers Karma Zopachoepel, I am forever grateful.

If you are serious about studying Buddhism, this would be a great addition to your collection.

May all sentient beings achieve liberation.
