Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extraordinary Extraordinary! So many Tibetan Buddhists. They have been at warfare over other Buddhist doctrines since the first arrival of Buddhism. Don't you know fool that the Bonpo and Kagyu teach trekchod and thogal. How can you be so arrogant to hold yourself over others on how thogal is discovered? You are so ready to insult others without really knowing yourself. Sounds like you only read the first five pages on spiritual abuse and formulated your judgement then and there. Any abusive teaching is attacked, Lamaism, guruism, Christian cults, self appointed personality cults, all of them are dark and oppressive. Look up The Rape of Kalu Rinpoche if you want to know more. Who do you think you are my friend who deserves compassion? I agree with you, these spiritual matters are beyond intellect. But how are you so empowered to judge others. I have only met two Western Tibetan Budhists who were not total flakes so wacky and judgemental, filled with fear and superstitions such as the fact that Tibetans spit on the blind thinking they are possessed by demons. Thogal is also considered to be just magical thinking. Other Buddhist philosophers strictly following the words of Siddhartha do not even believe in the Bardo. It is non-existent in reality. So you are just intoxicated by magical thinking like so many flaky, battle scarred Western Buddhists. Prescott was just trying to help you see the dangers ahead. How else was he to write even if it sounds arrogant or pompous as anyone who believes they may talk of these matters will most likely sound?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really? Is this a joke? Perplexed These teachings are keot secret for a good reason. They do not live in the realm of the intellect. To read about them is pointless. These teachings speak to and clarify direct experience of such subtlety that having a guide is essential. The arrogance of this author, to complain about the Nyingmapas! What Trekcho or Thogal would he ever hear of, if not the the Nyingmapas? It is like complaining about the Sun while talking about a beautiful sunset. So strange...
