Menge: 7
Shechen Gyaltsap is a renowned master of the Great Perfection, or Dzogchen, the pinnacle of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. He was the teacher of Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche and is therefore a wellspring of the wisdom and accomplishments of the present generation of teachers. Though he left behind a substantial collection of writings, little of it has been translated and made available to an English readership. His works translated here for the first time are essential instructions for those who practice, or aspire to practice, the teachings of the Great Perfection. Written with a clear simplicity that belies their profundity, these teachings give practical and pointed advice on how to meditate on the nature of mind, self-arisen primordial wisdom, and how to sustain this practice in daily life. They begin with an extensive reflection on the problem of self-clinging and the analytical meditation designed to uproot it, and proceed to more specific instructions for the mind practice itself, at all times insisting on the fundamental, indispensable attitudes of renunciation and bodhichitta—the determination to awaken for the benefit of all beings.
News & Reviews

"Gyaltsap Rinpoche, as we call him, was the root teacher of my own beloved master Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche. His knowledge and accomplishment of buddhadharma, especially of the Great Perfection, was equivalent to the mahasiddhas of the noble land of India. His instructions contain great blessings and will ripen seeds of understanding, allowing them to fully blossom into the realization of Samantabhadrahood that rests within all our hearts. . . . I am so glad that Padmakara Translation Group has made this effort and truly thank them for their work from the bottom of my heart." —Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche

"Shechen Gyaltsap Gyurmé Pema Namgyal was a great master of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. Practicing the Great Perfection is a wonderful translation of his pith instructions, which point out the nature of practice and, ultimately, the nature of mind in a direct, unpretentious, and uncompromising way. It is my prayer that those who have the fortune to read this book will understand it correctly and become diligent in its practice." —Dilgo Khyentse Yangsi Rinpoche
