Dudjom Lingpa (1835-1904) was one of the foremost tantric masters of nineteenth-century Tibet. This new series includes Dudjom Lingpa's five visionary teachings on the Great Perfection (Dzogchen), the pinnacle of practice in Tibet's oldest Buddhist school, along with three essential commentaries. The teachings in this series have inspired generations of Tibetans.

Volume 1 contains four works, beginning with The Sharp Vajra of Conscious Awareness Tantra, considered the root distillation of Dudjom Lingpa's wisdom. Unpacking these quintessential verses is the Essence of Clear Meaning, a definitive commentary based on Dudjom Lingpa's oral teachings recorded by his disciple Pema Tashi. In The Foolish Dharma of an Idiot Clothed in Mud and Feathers, Dudjom Lingpa narrates the essential Dharma teachings from the perspective of an old man rejecting superficial appearances. Finally, The Enlightened View of Samantabhadra is a masterful exposition of the Great Perfection revealed as a dialogue between wisdom beings who bestow a treasury of pith instructions and specific advice for practitioners.

Volume 2 includes Dudjom Lingpa's most widely taught work, Buddhism Without Meditation, and two complementary works by his charismatic female disciple, Sera Khandro, who is accomplished and well loved in her own right. Her Garland for the Delight of the Fortunate spells out the implications of the root text's highly condensed verses.

Volume 3 contains Dudjom Lingpa's magisterial Vajra Essence, his most extended meditation on the path of Great Perfection, in many senses a commentary on all his other Dzogchen works.
