Chögyal Namkhai Norbu teaches us that our natural condition is self-perfected from the very beginning. What is necessary is that we re-awaken and remain in our true nature. Through understanding and practice, we can rediscover the effortless knowledge of the Self-Perfected State that lies beyond our habitual anguish and confusion, and remain in this uninterrupted flow of contemplation, completely relaxed but fully present, through all activities. Rinpoche begins by clearly explaining the Dzogchen teachings and then reveals, in a simple and non-intellectual manner, what is meant by the practice of Dzogchen.

A superfine hand crafted bronze phurba with an incredibly rare
Siberian meteorite blade. Guaranteed to be crafted from authentic
Seymchan iron meteorite, which was first discovered in Siberia in 1967. Each piece is
hand crafted by a master metal worker who is unsurpassed in the making
of ritual phurbas in modern times. It is believed that Tibetans have an ancient tradition of using meteoric
iron for ritual Phurbas, however, very few genuine pieces have survived
or are known to exist. There is also mention of Guru Rinpoche or Yeshe
Tsogyal concealing meteoric phurbas as terma and a number have been re-discovered over the centuries. The
immense power of a meteorite when it falls to earth is so destructive in
nature that it is easy to see why sky metal is the most sought after
material for ritual phurbas.
