Quintessential Dzogchen elucidates how our confusion can dawn as
wisdom. Arranged for the simple meditator, these pithy instructions
strike the heart of the Buddha’s teachings by explaining how to both
acknowledge and train in your own enlightened essence.
Quintessential Dzogchen is an invaluable handbook replete with source
materials for those who seek further guidance. In forty-two writings by
some of the greatest masters, both past and present, as well as excerpts
from the most profound scriptures, the entire ground, path & fruition of
the foremost teachings of Tibetan Buddhism are clearly explained.
“For many people, the main point of the Buddha’s teaching involves
nothing more than understanding the difference between recognizing
and not recognizing mind-essence. Not recognizing is samsara, while
recognizing is nirvana or liberation. It’s from this perspective that we say
that all of the Buddha’s teachings are simply about the mind.”
—Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche
