Beautiful, evocative, and eminently useful, this rich array of texts and chants—with downloadable audio in both English and Tibetan and a full-color digital photo gallery—fills out the fundamental practices of the Heart Essence of the Vast Expanse tradition.

These foundational practices have for over three centuries been one of the most widely practiced and beloved gateways to Dzogchen in Tibet. This compilation of texts includes the story, history, music, and commentaries to help practitioners more fully understand the elements of the practice. With translations of the texts alongside their original Tibetan counterparts, this treasury of materials gives readers the opportunity to explore these beloved teachings in depth.
