Like an Illusion: Lives of the Shangpa Kagyu Masters by Nicole Riggs

Like An Illusion: Lives of the Shangpa Kagyu Masters presents the lively, touching, vibrant tales of the rare Shangpa Kagyu lineage of Tibet. This is the first English translation of biographies written between 500 and 1000 years ago. Like An Illusion includes the biographies of two accomplished women, the dakinis Niguma and Sukhasiddhi. The life stories then continue through the lineage, from Khyungpo Naljor, great yogi of the Shangpa Lineage, to Mokchokpa, Kyergangpa, on down to Jetsun Taranatha.
