Product Description


Seen as the culmination of all practice and study by the New Translation Schools of Tibetan Buddhism, the experience of Mahamudra, is an overwhelming sense of extraordinary clarity, totally open and nondualistic. Dzogchen, or Great Perfection, is the ultimate teaching according to the Nyingma tradition and also represents the pinnacle of spiritual development. Both lineages of meditation practice emphasize the ultimate state of awareness within and the clear and luminous nature of the mind. In this book, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, holder of the wisdom-lineages of both Dzogchen and Mahamudra, presents the view and practices of these two traditions with a pragmatic approach and informal style. He teaches that by applying ourselves to these practices, we can all experience our world more directly. "I know of no more complete, practical, and accessible guide to the paths of Mahamudra and Dzogchen. One of the most brilliant Tibetan Buddhist teachers of his generation, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche explains with striking clarity and richness the heart of the practice lineage, as, step by step, he leads us through the sutra, mantra, and essence mahamudra, and the nine vehicles that culminate in the Great Perfection: Dzogchen." Sogyal Rinpoche.
