Synopsis: A classic collection of writings on the meditation practice and theory of Dzogchen, the Great Perfection, by the celebrated fourteenth-century scholar and adept Longchen Rabjam (Longchenpa).
This classic collection of texts on the meditation practice and theory of Dzogchen presents the Great Perfection through the writings of its supreme authority, the fourteenth-century Tibetan scholar and visionary Longchen Rabjam. The pinnacle of Vajrayana practice in the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism, Dzogchen embodies a system of training that awakens the intrinsic nature of the mind to reveal its original essence, utterly perfect and free from all duality—buddha nature, or buddhahood itself.
In The Practice of Dzogchen, Tulku Thondup translates essential passages from Longchen Rabjam’s voluminous writings to illuminate and clarify this teaching. He also draws on the works of later masters of the tradition, placing Dzogchen in context both in relation to other schools of Buddhism and in relation to the nine-vehicle outline of the Buddhist path described in the Nyingma tradition. This expanded edition includes Counsel for Liberation, Longchenpa’s poetic exhortation to readers to quickly enter the path of liberation, the first step toward the summit of Dzogchen practice.
About the Author:
LONGCHEN RABJAM (1308-1363) is the most celebrated scholar and adept of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. A prolific writer, his works on the Great Perfection are still considered to be the most authoritative and comprehensive writings on the subject.
TULKU THONDUP was born in East Tibet and educated at Dodrupchen Monastery from the age of six. In 1980 he came to the United States as a visiting scholar at Harvard University and for the past three decades has lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where he writes, translates, and teaches under the auspices of the Buddhayana Foundation. His recent publications include The Healing Power of Mind and Boundless Healing.
HAROLD TALBOTT is the cofounder of the Buddhayana Foundation, an organization in Marion, Massachusetts, dedicated to preserving and promoting the wisdom and traditions of Tibetan Buddhism.
