A crisp clean softcover, no markings throughout: Why couldn't we be as detached from the thoughts that come and go in the mind as we are from the clouds that come and go in the sky? Clouds are many. They come and go. The sky is one, and remains unchanged. In the same way, thoughts are many; they come and go. There Witness is one and remains unchanged. The fact that we are not as detached from our thoughts as we are from the clouds is a habit of perception, not a necessity. The yogis tell us, change your perception, then you'll be free.

The tantric tradition plays a major role in Hinduism and Tibetan Buddhism, yet its teachings and philosophy are still little understood and often dist orted in the West.
