We have all had glimpses from the far shore, where with openness we experience and are fully in touch with ourselves. From the far shore we see with honesty, clarity, and true acceptance.

The Far Shore offers reflections on this experience in everyday life, and is addressed to all who are drawn to the path of awareness and compassion.


Far Shore is a precise, simple and clear practical book on the development of non-judgmental, choice less and insightful awareness which leads to the complete evolution of consciousness.
- DHIRAVAMSA, Author of Turning to the Source

These essays, like letters from a wise spiritual friend, emphasize the respect and kindness that are central to the heart’s spiritual awakening.
- JACK KORNFIELD, Author of A Path with Heart

To Vipassana practice, certainly different approaches are possible and desirable; and certainly yours of ‘‘soft Vipassana’’ can be helpful and effective. Those who are helped by it, may then feel encouraged to take up a stricter regimen.
- NYANAPONIKA MAHATHERA, Forest Hermitage, Kandy, Sri Lanka

Contemplation articulated, insight and concern expressed, it is as though getting in touch with a place within our own minds.
- THE VENERABLE TENZIN KACHOE, President of the Thubten Dhargye Ling Center (U.S.A.)

It is indeed a remarkable contribution for those on the path of awakening and a good book for those who keep abreast of the Vipassana technique and its application in daily life.
- AJIT R. TELANG, ‘Dilip’ Vol : 27, No. 4, Oct-Dec., 2001
