Jig-me Ling-pa, the exponent of Dzog-pa Ch'en-po Long-ch'en Nyingtig, provides the required preliminary for the practice of Dzog-ch'en in a short liturgical prayer called The Excellent Path to Omniscience. One of his eminent disciples, Jig-me Gyal-way Nyu-gu, gave an oral instruction on it, which his disciple, Dza Pal-trí_l Rin-po-ch'e, transcribed and gave the title, Kí_n-zang La-may Zhal-lung. Preface by Chatral Rin-po-ch 'e, Translated & edited by Sonam T. Kazi
