A profound commentary on two important texts on the preliminary practices, or ngondro, informed by Thinley Norbu's understanding of the concerns of Western practitioners. The main commentary is on the well-known Dudjom Tersar Ngondro, a terma revealed by Dudjom Lingpa. Also included is a second commentary, on a short prayer text (Tsogskhang Dechen) written by Dudjom Rinpoche. Together, these two commentaries offer the occasion for Thinley Norbu Rinpoche to impart his powerful insight into various aspects of the Buddhist path from the tantric point of view.
A fantastic hand painted thangka of the 1000 Armed Chenrezig. Painted in the Karma Gadri style.
Please note that this Thangka will be coming directly from our artist in Nepal, so will take 3 to 4 months to complete. You will receive a Thangka of equal quality, painted by the same artist as the picture shown. It will be worth the wait!
