Dzogchen is a time-honored set of teachings kept alive in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. The word Dzogchen means the Great Perfection and its principle is to bring the state of enlightenment into your present experience. To bridge this gap between our ordinary state of mind and the awakened state of all buddhas, a realistic approach is necessary. Quintessential Dzogchen is a joyful access to this tradition. It is a sourcebook on how to study, contemplate, and meditate in a supportive environment abundant in rich material and practices. Here is a definitive map showing where practitioners of Dzogchen are going and how to get there. The Primer includes the basics for proper understanding and practice--a source anyone on this path can turn to for guidance.

Marcia Binder Schmidt has gathered here the most accessible, down-to-earth writings published on this subject in English and organized it as a study guide for the serious beginner on the Dzogchen path. This collection includes writings from well-known and venerable masters Padmasambhava, Milarepa, Shantideva, Chogyam Trungpa, and Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, among others.

Complete with short, tutorial notes for each subtopic, intended to assist both independent students and teachers leading workshops, along with two introductions from living Dzogchen masters, this primer presents an inclusive collection of study and practice that allows it to be understood and assimilated.
