Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Vajrayana Buddhism differs from other branches of Buddhism in providing an accelerated path to enlightenment based on Dzogchen principles. The word "dzogchen, "translated variously as GreatPerfection and Great Completeness, conveys the idea that our nature as intrinsic awareness has many qualities that make it "perfect" indestructibility, incorruptible purity, non-discriminatingopenness, flawless clarity, profound simplicity, all-pervading presence, and attitude of equality toward all beings. The path to connecting to these qualities was once secretly held and privately transmitted; "TheGreat Gate: A Guidebook to the Guru's Heart Practice "makes the Vajrayana path and techniques available to contemporary seekers. Drawing on the work of four renowned Tibetan masters, "The GreatGate "compiles concise instructions on Dzogchen's foundational practices, which comprise a powerful method for turning the mind toward the Dharma and opening to the Dzogchen perspective. This revisededition features a new translation and an extensive commentary by Choouml;kyi Nyima Rinpoche.

"From the Trade Paperback edition."

Synopsis:

The Great Gate, A Guidebook to the Gurus Heart Practice, is a compilation of instructions on the preliminary practices by the great masters, Chokling Dewey Dorje, Dudjom Rinpoche, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche. Clear direct and personal, these teachings lucidly explain the application of key practices in the Vajrayana path, the pinnacle of which is the Great Perfection, the deepest and most undeviating way to attain enlightenment. The methods of the masters presented in this book focus on the simple approach of a meditator that is saturated with direct, pithy instructions. This is a tradition of plainly and simply stating things as they are, allowing the student to gain personal experience by challenging their intellect and guiding them towards realization.
