Like An Illusion: Lives of the Shangpa Kagyu Masters ebook


Nicole Riggs download


Reminiscent of Milarepa's Songs, the stories in "Like An Illusion" combine enlightened songs, beautifully rendered in Nicole Riggs' translation, with profound wisdom. The translator also offers an introduction that looks at the importance of women in the lineage, the appeal of solitude to the Shangpa masters, and other features of this unique lineage. Nicole Riggs worked on "Like An Illusion" over a period of five years while living in isolation in a camper and travelling with the seasons.

Nicole Riggs has presented a very well written book, but comparing her translation to the Tibetan original, I can't help but notice that she often omits sizable chunks of the texts. But what really has me bewildered is the strange gender issue that she seems to have. When I translate a text, I translate what's written there, period. I do not add things, unless I make it very clear that it is an addition by me, and I certainly don't change things around so they suit me better. But changing even the names of male deities into female ones, now that's utterly ridiculous!!! But as I say, otherwise a good and inspiring read...

I strongly recommend this book. It is engaging, delightful, and full of help for those seeking enlightenment. These biographies will inspire and entertain readers while at the same time providing valuable information. Obstacles can be overcome. Nicole Riggs is clearly highly realized and very knowledgeable about Tibetan Buddhism. She is the only author I have encountered who has explained what Dakinis are (what they are symbolic of) and their purpose in achieving enlightenment. I look forward to getting a copy of her other book "Milarepa, Songs on the Spot". Buy this book.

In this book, Nicole Riggs provides both a translation--several hundred pages long--of Buddhist biographies, and a thorough introduction that is thoughtful and filled with examples from the text; I thought her treatment of the issues of women, solitude, and miracles, was outstanding. I also liked "Appendix III: Songs of the Dakinis", with the Tibetan text on the recto page. I strongly recommend the book.
