Editorial Reviews

Review

"The root text of Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo, a terma revealed by the great treasure-finder Chokgyur Lingpa, and its commentary by Kongtrül Rinpoche, the great translator in person, form tohether a complete scripture that embodies all the tantras, statements and instructions of the Nyingma School of the early translations, which is most rare to find in the past, present, or future."
- Kyabje Dilgo Kyentse Rinpoche

Format: Paperback
Tulku Urgyen's wrightings on Dzogchen leap from the page and inspire with their straight forward simplicity. Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche manages to make "crystal' clear a subject that is sometimes explained by speaking in conrundrums. I would highly reccomend to anyone seeking to experience dzogchen both volumes of tulku Urgyen Rinpoche's As It Is series as well as his book "rainbow painting'. These are the books I keep close by and read again and again.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is highly readable; but not light reading. This book was compiled with the commentary of three extraordinary masters - Jamang Khyentse Wangpo, Jamgon Kongtrul, and Chokyur Lingpa. Every page is full of extraordinary deep meaning. Reading this book is not a fast walk in the park. It takes time to digest, and should in my opinion be read many many times through. The footnotes are such a goldmine, that I'm now going back through the book reading the footnotes first, and then the chapters. It is intended that you receive the oral transmission from a vajrayana master before you read the book. I cannot say it would not be worthwhile otherwise, because I am not qualified to have an opinion, but that's what is recommended in the book, and I think it is important to go by that. Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche said generally that there is no value in reading books on Vajrayana unless you have had the oral transmission, so I go by that.

The footnotes themselves; or some of the twelve appendices of the book are worth the cost of the book by themselves. Appendices include The Six Limits and Four Modes which deal with explaining different levels of meaning. An appendix The Four Dhyanas and Formless States which deal with different levels of attention, dealing with such topics as learning and reflection, the remedy for discarding desire and disturbing emotions, the relation of states of concept and discernment to each of the dhyanas, etc..

If you are a beginner in meditation, or have less then 10 years of study and practice then this book is most definitely NOT for you, unless you are an extraordinary prodigy; or exceptionally brilliant, or good at sorting through and assimilating detail.
