However, be warned that the material is for people already a bit opened up to this body of teaching. it's sometimes difficult and paradoxical, and uses concepts which may not be 100% clear to someone without a basic background in zen, buddhism, or eastern mysticism in general. But i would still recommend it. At the very least, stick it in a drawer and get back to it later. this is very high quality authentic stuff. I can't overstate that.
