Description Contents
 
"This world is formed by the Five Elements. Human Beings are the only living beings who have riches, wisdom, as well as enduring wealth, and their capabilities and intellectual ability can dominate everything in the world. The practice of Mahayana/Thegpa Chenpo Secret Mantras originates from the high plateau called Zhang Zhung in Western Tibet. With this book, I would like to present that knowledge and its cultural background to the general public.

"There were Eighty Great Practitioners of the Magyud/Mother Tantra Teachings in the early centuries. All of them were very influential personas during their time. The practice of energy control and the Magyud Secret Mantras by these Mahasiddhas/Drubchen helped to release sentient beings from suffering, create a peaceful state of mind, and preserve good health. Through physical Tsa Lung exercises they were able to keep their bodies active and youthful. With breathing exercises they could prevent and cure diseases.

"These Great Masters could control their inner energies by meditation on the flow of psychic energy (Tsa Lung Thigle Nyamlen), on the Blissful Essence of Reality (Nelug Dewa Chenpo), and on the Empty Nature of all phenomenal existence (Tongpa Nyi Kyi Rangzin). Through these practices they could transform the Three Doors of Body, Speech, and Mind into the pure state of mind of an Enlightened Being. In this pure state of mind, all mental obscurations (Dripa Nyi), emotional defilements (Nyon Mongpe Drip), and cognitive obscurations (Shejye Dripa) are purified in the Wisdom of Primordial Awareness."
