He was no spiritual snob, yet he had a specific domain of specialization—the meditation techniques of Himalayan tantric Buddhism. He knew that readers could use The Treasury of Knowledge in a variety of ways, but his personal motivation in spearheading the translation project was to improve everyone’s comprehension of the path to which he (and Kongtrul) had dedicated his life.

If these books were matched with similar studies in English on our bookshelves, the translators’ task would have been far lighter.

My inner turmoil reached a crescendo. I dutifully dragged myself to Tokyo one more time, but try as I might, I could not manage to force myself to meet with our sponsor.
