"'A few missing pieces of the puzzle' is how Tai Situ Rinpoche described the teachings in this book. Based on his personal notes and compositions, Rinpoche explains both complex and practical aspects of the Buddha's teachings. In his own entertaining and informative style he covers such diverse topics as Refuge, the Chenrezig practice, Meditation, the History of Buddhism, its philosophical schools and Mahamudra. As is the custom in Tibetan monasteries, when he was a young man Rinpoche went through a period of intense study and practice in which he was introduced by his teachers to many different aspects of Buddhism. During this time he took notes and composed poems describing what he was learning. Now, a quarter of a century later, he revisits these compositions bringing to them new insights garnered from years of experience. As a main custodian of the Kagyu lineage he is able to share with us the living tradition he received "with devotion" from some of the greatest Buddhist teachers of the last century. In this book he seamlessly blends this ancient tradition with a modern, practical sensibility and a rich sense of humor. "
