Ground, path, and fruition is a type of logic used to understand a whole subject clearly. Here, it is applied to teachings on mind and mind essence from Tsoknyi Rinpoche by Lotsawa Tony Duff to make a complete guide to the higher practices of Essence Mahamudra and the Thorough Cut of Great Completion. The book contains several, complete teachings on these subjects all carefully arranged into ground, path, and fruition presentations. Moreover, the path instructions are extensively presented using the logic of view, meditation, and conduct. Tony has additionally highlighted the special type of instructions, called upadesha, that form the core teachings of these practices.

From the Introduction by the author: "Tsoknyi Rinpoche approached me, his translator, and asked me to create a book of his teachings that would show the tenets (of the Dzogchen and Essence Mahamudra teachings) and asked specifically for a ground, path, and fruition presentation. I selected three sets of his teachings for the purpose. The first gave extensive ground, path, and fruition teachings from both Kagyu Mahamudra and Nyingma Dzogchen perspectives. The second gave extensive instructions on the path from both perspectives. The third gave an extensive presentation just of the Dzogchen path. The selections chosen and the arrangements made of the teachings in them make the book into a manual both of the theory and practice of the Thorough Cut practice of Dzogchen that can be used by students of Tsoknyi Rinpoche or others who are studying and practising the same material...".
