Prof. Bob Thurman on "Mirror of Light" by Dr. Nida Chenagtsang

It is my wish that the unbroken lineage of Ati Yoga will shine as a great and universal light that will eliminate the darkness of suffering. The greater the darkness, the more this light will shine.
— Dr. Nida Chenagtsang

Dr. Nida Chenagtsang was born in Amdo, eastern Tibet. He began his medical studies at the local Tibetan Medicine hospital and graduated from the Tibetan Medical University in Lhasa in 1996. He has published many articles and books on Traditional Tibetan Medicine and has gained acclaim in the East and West. He is co-founder and Medical Director of Sorig Khang International and co-founder of the International Ngak-mang Institute. Dr. Nida trains students in over 40 countries.

Mirror of Light, Vol. 1,  contains precise instruction on Ati Yoga’s preliminary practices and trekchod (cutting through hardness)—ancient proven techniques that reveal the present fresh awareness that is free from all confusion and beyond the 'hardness' of dualistic thinking.
