Description
 

Translated from the Tibetan by Adriano Clemente, Elio Guarisco, Jim Valby in collaboration with Chgyal Namkhai Norbu

The Marvellous Primordial State (rDzog pa chen po byang chub kyi sems rmad du byung ba) is a profoundly important root text of Dzogchen semde (Mind Series).

Although this ancient text in forty chapters is not as large, nor has it as many chapters, as The Supreme Source (Kun byed rgyal poi rgyud), it teaches all the essential principles of Dzogchen Ati, which can be subsumed in the view without fixations, contemplation beyond concepts, and the fruit which is not attained by treading a path. Therefore, this ancient manuscript of the Byang chub sems rmad du byung ba contains the essence of all sutras and tantras of the Buddhas teaching with nothing missing.

Three of my students the lotsawas (translators) Adriano Clemente, Elio Guarisco, and Jim Valby who have a familiarity with the view, meditation, and behavior of Dzogpa Chenpo, and who in particular have gained a good understanding of the grammar of the ancient Dzogchen texts and of the system of Tibetan language, surmounting difficulties for several years, translated this ancient text into English.

The Marvelous Primordial State of Great Perfection is a profoundly important root text of the Mind series of Dzogchen. Although this ancient text is not as large, nor has it as many chapters as The Supreme Source, it teaches all the essential principles of Ati Dzogchenthat can be subsumed in the view without fixations, contemplation beyond concepts, and the fruit that is not obtained by treading a path. Therefore, this bookcontains the essence of all sutras and tantras of the Buddhas teaching, with nothing missing.

Our English translation of The Marvelous Primordial State, an ancient and extraordinary text the like of which is rarely found in the world and whose value is immeasurable, has been made for the benefit of those fortunate ones who wish to gain an understanding of the real meaning of Ati Dzogpa Chenpo. I truly hope and wish that it will serve to open the doors of their minds and engender a genuine understanding of the principle of Ati Dzogpa Chenpo.
