"I LOVE, I mean I truly LOVE Lorin Roche’s Radiance Sutras; his beautifully poetic rendition of the classic Vijñāna Bhairava text that has been handed down to us by the Kashmir nondual tradition. Lorin offers us a translation that should be savored, word-by-word, slowly, deliciously, like the five-star meal it is, that’s served with only the finest and rarest of wines. His words capture the essential perfume of the indescribable mystery that is our essential nature, which has given birth to each of us, that underlies the entire cosmos. The Radiance Sutras is a book that will bring you endless days and nights of delight, joy and wonder. Certainly, this is one book I’d want if ever I was stranded on a desert island. This is a must have for your reading table, to keep close by, to savor, that reminds us of the mystery of love incarnate that we and everything around us is." – Richard Miller, Author of Yoga Nidra.
