A description of the Tibetan Buddhist Dzogchen path of awakening, with instructions and guidance for following it
Born into a family of Buddhist scholars and teachers, DZOGCHEN PONLOP was ordained as a monk at an early age and studied closely with the 16th Karmapa and Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, two of the greatest Buddhist masters of the twentieth century. One of the foremost scholars of his generation in the Nyingma and Kagyu schools of Tibetan Buddhism, he is an accomplished meditation master, calligrapher, visual artist, and poet. He is the primary architect for the many websites under the Nalandabodhi/Nitartha umbrella and publisher of Bodhi magazine, an internationally distributed Buddhist periodical. His Buddhist practice and study organization, which is called Nalandabodhi and is based in Seattle, has centers in many major cities in the United States and Europe.
One of the most brilliant Tibetan Buddhist teachers of his generation.--Sogyal Rinpoche
