Description About the author Contents
 
The All-Creating King is held by many to be the single most important source on the Great Perfection: the Dzogchen or Atiyoga. There is no other book like it. From within the framework of a Buddhist view of the world, it speaks clearly about a creator, and purports to give us the teachings of this creator. The creator of all things, it claims, is the Bodhicitta. In its eighty-four chapters we are thoroughly introduced to this creator of all things and what he has to say. The All-Creating King is a great work of literature, one that will be prized by those interested in the Great Perfection as well as those interested in comparative literature, world religions, theology, mysticism, and philosophy.According to its colophon, The All-Creating King was translated into Tibetan and published by Vairochana in cooperation with his teacher Sri Singha in the Eighth Century of our era. Its very unconventional contents made it the subject of scrutiny from early on, and it is on a list of banned books compiled by Podrang Zhiwa Od in the Eleventh century. Despite its being banned, it has been faithfully retained in both canonical and extra-canonical collections right up to this day. In the division of the Great Perfection’s literature into three classes: The Mind Section, Space Section, and Upadesa Instruction Section, the All-Creating King is considered to be the foremost Root Tantra of the Mind Section.
