    Penetrating Wisdom

    The Aspiration of Samantabhadra

    • by
    • Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
    The reason we rely on the Vajra master is that we have already tried many different methods to wake ourselves up, but none of them really worked.

When this feeble beep happens, our great samsaric command is to move a hand with tremendous habitual power and press the… Read More

    Guru Rinpoche

    His Life and Times

    • by
    • Ngawang Zangpo
    To Tibetan Buddhists, Guru Rinpoche is a Buddha. This book recounts Guru Rinpoche's historic visit to Tibet and explains his continuing significance to Buddhists. In doing so, it illustrates how a country whose powerful armies overran the capital of China and installed a puppet emperor came to abandon its aggressive military campaigns: this transformation was due to Guru Rinpoche, who tamed and converted Tibet to Buddhism and thereby changed… Read More

    Great Perfection, Volume Two

    Separation and Breakthrough

    • by
    • Third Dzogchen Rinpoche
    In the Nyingma School of Tibetan Buddhism, the Great Perfection is considered the most profound and direct path to enlightenment. The instructions of this tradition present a spiritual shortcut—a radically direct approach that cuts through confusion and lays bare the mind's true nature of luminous purity. For centuries, these teachings have been taught and practiced in secret by some of the greatest adepts of the Buddhist tradition. Great Perfection: Outer… Read More
