Description Contents
 
Entrance to the Great Perfection: A Guide to the Dzogchen Preliminaries serves as an accessible introduction to the history and practices of the Great Perfection, one of the most profound systems of meditation in Tibet. In addition to providing background information on the origins and development of this tradition, Entrance to the Great Perfection also offers practical guidance on its so-called "preliminary practices."

Unlike most works on Tibetan Buddhism, which tend to offer either traditional teachings or a modern perspective on Buddhist practice, this work blends these two perspectives. It includes classic commentaries on the preliminary practices by the eighteenth-century Tibetan saint Jigme Lingpa and Rime master Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, alongside a lively contemporary discussion by filmmaker, author, and renowned spiritual teacher Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse that approaches these practices from a modern perspective, discussing how to incorporate them into the fast-paced lifestyle of the Western world. Also included are a lengthy introduction to the world of Tibetan Buddhism and its meditative practices, the long and short preliminary practice liturgies, and numerous appendices on the nine yanas and other topics.
