Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche illuminates the path of trekchö, or cutting through the confusion of samsara to the primordial purity of the mind's essential nature, based on the atiyoga dzogchen instructions of Paltrul Rinpoche.
     Three Words That Strike the Vital Point is the famous seminal statement by Garap Dorje that is said to encapsulate all the myriad dzogchen tantras. The key instructions on it by the outstanding nineteenth-century master Paltrul Rinpoche--the verses known as "The Special Teaching of Khepa Shri Gyalpo"--form the basis for Khyentse Rinpoche's discourse here.
    These teachings belong to the oral instruction division of atiyoga and explain the path of trekchö, or directly cutting through the confusion of samsara to the primordial purity of the nature of mind.
    In dzogchen, when one has fully recognized that all the confusion of samsara is the expressive power of primordially pure great emptiness, confusion is spontaneously liberated into the primordial purity of mind's original nature. Compassion spontaneously arises, accomplishing the benefit of sentient beings. Khyentse Rinpoche was renowned for his ability to elucidate the dzogchen teachings and to lead students of all backgrounds to deeper experiential realization. His powerful presence shines through the pages of this book.

About the Author:

DILGO KHYENTSE RINPOCHE (1910-1991) was a highly accomplished meditation master, scholar, and poet, and a principal holder of the Nyingma lineage. His extraordinary depth of realization enabled him to be, for all who met him, a fountain of loving-kindness, wisdom, and compassion. A dedicated exponent of the nonsectarian Rime movement, Khyentse Rinpoche was respected by all schools of Tibetan Buddhism and taught many eminent teachers, including His Holiness the Dalai Lama. He tirelessly worked to preserve and propagate the Buddhist teachings through giving transmissions and instructions to thousands of people across the world, publishing important texts, and building monasteries and stupas.
