Product description

Amazon Review

Within Tibetan Buddhism, there is a little-known discipline called Dzogchen, the turbo path to liberation. In some traditions, the path to liberation extends over lifetimes of diligent practice, but Dzogchen is an accelerated way to self-perfection. After many years of formal study, Chogyal Namkhai Norbu was initiated into this less formal practice, which is one of the highest, and yet most accessible, of Tibetan Buddhist teachings. Namkhai Norbu eventually made his way to Italy to teach, where John Shane transcribed and translated Namkhai Norbu's lectures, putting together what is now one of the most popular books on Dzogchen. Namkhai Norbu makes it clear that these teachings are not a handbook for practice but are instead an overview of dzogchen, notably, its three divisions--the base, the path and the fruit. The ultimate and immediate goal is to achieve the primordial state of non-dual awareness, the one taste, and to maintain it. With colourful anecdotes from his own experience (finding an ancient text manifest from a dream, for example, and visiting eccentric cave yogis), Namkhai Norbu's talks illustrate that dzogchen is not just theory but the way to a new, and almost incomprehensible, way of being. --Brian Bruya

Review

"One of the most significant contributions to the understanding of Tibetan Buddhism to have appeared in recent years."--The Middle Way
