Sunlight Speech That Dispels the Darkness of Doubt:

Sublime Prayers, Praises, and Practices of the Nyingma Masters

Short and sweet, not a book to be read, but manual to be meditated on

Rinpoche gave us a volume of traditional Tibetan texts that are instructions for the visualization, meditation, contemplation, awakening, published in an American hardcover binding, in English language, available for mail order through global mainstream company like amazon… Simple, short, sweet… It is here, it has arrived.

To practice these one would do well to go any local Tibetan Buddhist Nyingma Center and it is highly likely that something from this selection is already used there.

For a few of other Rinpoche books I wrote that they are not books but rather experiences on display, in front of us. This book is a road map to these experiences.

Experience of the experience,

Experience of the experience. All the books from the Thinley Norbu Rinpoche. regardless how much scholarship is on display lay an experience in front of their readers. They are not a push to make “next step” but rather a head first full body dive into an ocean. And this book is very special in a way that Rinpoche talks about his own experiences, while letting us in…

The Sole Panacea: A Brief Commentary on the Seven-Line Prayer to Guru Rinpoche That Cures the Suffering of the Sickness of Karma and Defilement

The Experience

-This is not a book – book offering explanations, deeper meaning so on, so forth.
As it is quoted from the Diamond Sutra on the Page 31:

“…Those that see me as form,
Those that know me as sound,
Are on the wrong path.
They cannot see me.
Buddhas see the pure nature of the phenomena.
All Buddhas are Dharmakaya.
Dharmata is not knowledge.
It is impossible to understand it..”

This book does lay out in front of the reader the experience.

Lama

Since pure awareness of nowness is the real buddha,
In openness and contentment I found the Lama in my heart.
When we realize this unending natural mind is the very nature of the
Lama,
Then there is no need for attached, grasping, or weeping prayers or
artificial complaints,
By simply relaxing in this uncontrived, open, and natural state,
We obtain the blessing of aimless self-liberation of whatever arises.

-DUDJOM RINPOCHE


May in all lifetimes, high or low, we never be separate from the Glorious Lama!

Buddhahood Without Meditation, A Visionary Account Known as Refining Apparent Phenomenon (Nang-jang)
by Dudjom Lingpa

 Buddhahood Without meditation (Nang-jang) 

The full title of the text is Buddhahood Without Meditation: Advice for Making Fully Evident One’s True Face – Natural Great Perfection. Revised Edition by Dudjom Lingpa

Buddhahood Without Meditation, widely known by its subtitle, Nang-jang (Refining Apparent Phenomena), presents the view of the Great Perfection through the approach known as trekchö (cutting through solidity). This second, revised edition is the result of a thorough reexamination of the original English translation done in an effort to clarify the terminology and meaning of Dudjom Lingpa’s text for Western students of the Great Perfection. The glossary as been revised accordingly and expanded to incorporate new terms. It also includes the Tibetan text as edited by H.H.Dudjom Rinpoche, as well has his Structural Analysis and Outline.

“The Nangjang was prepared as an inexhaustible treasure trove of the gift of the Buddha’s teachings, the relics of the dharmakaya.” –H.H.Dudjom Rinpoche [from publisher’s website at: http://www.padmapublishing.com/BOOKS/nangjang.htm]

” THIS TEXT BELONGS to the category of atiyoga, the highest of the nine vehicles that constitute the Buddhist path. Moreover, it is from the short lineage of Dudjom Lingpa, a direct transmission of the Great perfection approach so powerful that even hearing it read aloud ensures that the listener will eventually escape the suffering of samsara.
It should be remembered, however, that to benefit fully from the Nang-jang, one must receive empowerment, oral transmission, and a teachings from a qualified Dzogchen master.” Page V.
