Description
 
"In the practice of dzokchen we are pointing to wisdom so unique that it can lead us back to our original mind, our original strength. In the Shambhala teachings, that manifests as the principle of Ashe. To lead us into seeing who we really are is the Dorje Dradül's very powerful inspiration. This is our path." —The Sakyong

Available to Shambhala Vajrayana students.

This book is compiled from talks given by the Sakyong during eight retreats for vajrayana students from 2006 to 2008, known as Garchens, "Great Gatherings." Its main theme throughout is the deep connection between mahamudra and dzokchen—the highest vajrayana teachings—and the Shambhala terma received by the Dorje Dradül.

In presenting dzokchen, Rinpoche draws on two texts from Mipham Jamyang Gyatso: The Torch That Dispells Darkness, and a text on the four yogas of Mahamudra. Also offered are practice instructions and guided meditations, including a mahamudra instruction composed by the Vidyadhara in Tibet, taken from the teachings gathered by his nephew, Karma Senge Rinpoche.

To facilitate study, contemplation, and discussion, the book is structured in short chapters. The first three parts introduce the Shambhala dzokchen teachings, how to approach them, and the central role of transmission. The next four parts elaborate on the practices—mainly trekchö, mahamudra, and Ashe.
