From Library Journal:

This work, also known as The Mirror of Clear Meaning, is a classic work of Tibetan Buddhism and perhaps one of the less accessible, not for its prolixity (as might be said of some of the more ancient texts from this tradition) but for its brevity. Writing in the 19th century Dorje adopted the Men ngag style, using brief, disconnected verses to express personal insight and experience. The essence of the work, as translated and expounded by Low, is a careful rejection of dualistic experience: "The notion of a doer and a deed is just a confusing illusion, like a dream or magic." Many readers should find this approach attractive, as it lacks the intense esotericism or complex cosmologies of other Tibetan Buddhist teachings. Recommended for most collections.
