this is the good Yeshe Lama, the main well known, complete and the main efficacious of the Dzogchen manuals. it's a sourcebook for Dzogchen Breakthrough/Leapover precepts. definitely, the Yeshe Lama lives as much as its attractiveness. it's nonetheless the crown jewel of the latter-day Dzogchen lineages. it's on the apex of the Longchen Nyingtik corpus of literature, providing the fundamental Dzogchen yogas in pith guideline. The Longchen Nyingtik is predicated firmly in Longchen Rabjampa’s imaginative and prescient, an incredible, large and profound Dzogchen imaginative and prescient written down because the Seven Treasuries, which in flip have been established in detail upon the tantras of the Nyingma Gyubum, the treasure condominium of Dzogchen.

The translation used to be made for the good thing about scholars who've acquired transmission and oral directions from a instructor and want rationalization and elucidation from an authoritative literary resource. it's intended for yogins and yoginis, adepts and practitioners.

It will not be eventually authoritative, yet grounded within the knowledge of the previous Dzogchen lamas who have been clever ahead of they got here out of Tibet, because the fruit of a lifetime’s listening, learning and contemplation it can be of a few use to those that are devoted to the Dzogchen yogi ethos. The city yogis who've no reference to the normal educating can also relish entry to its precepts. most importantly, in my brain, this translation stresses the nondual point of Dzogchen, the novel point that's missed by way of traditional Buddhist Vajrayanists.
The translation makes an attempt, anywhere attainable, to explain guideline, unravel ambiguities, and switch abstruse Tibetan nuance and allusion into understandable English prose. occasionally that isn't attainable as a result of a scarcity of English equivalents of Tibetan phrases or metaphors, occasionally end result of the density or obscurity of the Tibetan that means, occasionally simply because an arbitrary which means has been misplaced within the fresh attenuation of the culture. definitely, this translation doesn't purport to breed the excessive literary caliber and type of Jigme Lingpa’s Tibetan prose – that's inimitable. neither is it a literal translation the place each be aware is accounted for and each example of a selected note translated through a similar English identical.

Rigzin Jigme Lingpa, the eighteenth-century mystic-scholar who composed the Longchen Nyingthig was once an incarnation of Longchenpa within the most vital feel of the expression and his Longchen Nyingtik grew to become the seed, root and department of a Dzogchen revival that reverberates round the complete global at the start of the twenty-first century.
