"Jean-Luc Achard is undoubtedly one of the most experienced and knowledgeable Western scholars on the various Great Perfection systems of Tibet, both Buddhist and Bon. His lucid and annotated translation of the Six Lamps is a must read for any serious student and practitioner of Tibetan Dzogchen. His masterly translation is assisted with learned comments and notes which will assist inquisitive researchers in their quest for primary sources and contextualization. This volume is an important contribution to Tibetan Studies in general as well as to the serious specialists and student of this meditative system."--Marc des Jardins, Concordia University
"Many have eagerly been awaiting an English rendering of Jean-Luc Achard's masterly French translation of the Instructions on the Six Lamps. These are most fascinating and important B n teachings. Achard moreover is the leading expert in the field. He brings his impressive erudition, near-native command of the Tibetan language, and impeccable academic acumen to the task. In addition--and this is a combination even much rarer--on nearly every page, he displays deep insight into the application of these teachings in actual practice. This new translation is a major improvement on what is widely available in English. Achard manages to render the direct, colloquial style of the Tibetan in plain and accessible English, lucid and faithful to the original. Extensive introductory materials greatly aid comprehension for the general reader but do not burden with technical minutiae. This sympathetic translation will speak to a wide audience but will also be much appreciated by those with a more scholarly or academic bent."--Henk Blezer, Leiden University and Amsterdam Free University
