Sparks is a a wide ranging and accessible collection of short writings and poems arising from James Low’s experience of practising and teaching Buddhism for many years. The book’s focus is on the dzogchen approach of resting in intrinsic open awareness which is the radiance of our being. In simple and beautiful language it is an expression of the profound non-dual view of Dzogchen, which illuminates the enlivening Buddha potential present in all of us.
Sparks’ pithy collection of prose and poems can be entered at any point, enjoyed and reflected upon since each ‘spark’ or ‘snippet’ is complete in itself. The topic is profound, yet it is condensed and expressed in simple language using examples and metaphors from everydaylife and the living world around us
