Several of these stories are unfinished or unpolished. Please do not print out more than one example if you would like to take something away from your screen.  Also, even though they are unpolished, still they are protected under international copyright laws concerning artistic and intellectual property. 


Precious Teacher is truly a work-in-progress with all the writer's notes.  There may be inaccuracies, duplication and inconsistencies since the text comes from various sources that are translations, and each has used a different system for spelling Tibetan words.
