Description
 
This book is a compendium of the dharma teachings given by Tsoknyi Rinpoche during his annual trips to the United States in the 1990s. Tsoknyi Rinpoche's stated preference during that time was toteach in a retreat setting for at least ten days so that he could expose the teachings of Thorough Cut-one of the two ultimate teachings of Great Completion-and the teachings of Mahamudra in their entirety. Tsoknyi Rinpoche also gave public talks and weekend intensives that exposed the meaning of these profound teachings without giving the introduction to mind and innermost oral instructions needed to practice them.
The talks are not restricted and can be read by anyone. Collectively, they are an ideal way to get a clear understanding of these teachings and the terminology connected with them. Lotsawa Tony Duff, who was Tsoknyi Rinpoche's personal translator during the span of time covered by this book, and a qualified teacher in his own right, translated and helped to transmit all of the teachings contained here. He has collected, edited, and carefully arranged them into this book.
The book forms a good introduction to Tibetan Buddhist meditation in general and will be an excellent resource for anyone interested in Thorough Cut and Mahamudra practices in particular. Lotsawa Tony, using his close personal knowledge of Tsoknyi Rinpoche and his teaching style has arranged the teachings so that they form an interesting history of the development of Tsoknyi Rinpoche's teaching style.
