For no matter how profound and beneficial the teachings are, it
is only when we have certainty in them that they will be of direct
and immediate benefit to us personally.
Andy has taken great care in this book to guide
new students on this path of contemplation and gaining certainty
in reality's profound true nature. I pray that all who read this
book will find it beneficial to their spiritual journey and that
they will have the enthusiasm and confidence to proceed on this
inner path of profound contemplation. The Buddha had the great confidence
in human beings to present to them these most profound teachings
and, in particular, modern Westerners are perfectly capable of understanding
them and putting them into practice. May everyone do so, for the
immeasurable benefit of sentient beings, who extend as far as the
limits of space.
