Praise for Cloudless Sky

"In the purity of its vision, it can be a door that opens, even for a moment, onto the meaning of ground, path, and fruition. . . . Cloudless Sky is perhaps most valuable as part of Jamgön Kongtrül Rinpoche's transmission, a way for him to continue to function as guide and spiritual friend."— Tricycle
