Description
 
Author(s) : Padmasambhava & Kunsang, Erik Pema

Guru Rinpoche's oral teachings to his chief disciple and consort, Yeshe Tsogyal, presented here, were recorded in a coded language called dakini script and concealed until their revelation as terma centuries later. The selections in Dakini Teachings are short, direct instructions relating to the three levels of Buddhist practice: Hinayana, Mahayana and Vajrayana. The main emphasis of Padmasambhava's teaching is that spiritual knowledge must be personalized and not remain as mere theory. The book is based on the revealed termas of Nyang Ral Nyima Oser and it includes an introductory discourse by Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and a short biography of Padmasambhava by Jamgon Kongtrul.

"Descend with the view while ascending with the conduct. It is most essential to practice these two as a unity."Padmasambhava.

This statement of Guru Rinpoche is of crucial importance. If we start out by acting according to a high view, we will simply look crazy or insane. If we only keep the view of the lower vehicles we will never find the chance for liberation. The view of a shravaka or pratyekabuddha does not bring enlightenment in one lifetime but only after three incalculable aeons. One must act in accordance with the lower vehicles while keeping the view of the inner tantras." Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche.
