A unique antique thangka reproduction printed on canvas. This is the four-armed representation of the Bodhisattva of compassion, accompanied by Amitabha, White Tara, and Ushnishavijaya. In his upraised right hand Chenrezig or Avalokiteshvara holds a mala, and in his left hand the stem of a lotus blossom. His two lower hands are held palms-together in a traditional gesture of blessing. Below Avalokiteshvara are three wrathful deities: Yamantaka, left, standing on a bull; the powerful protectress Palden Lhamo in the center, mounted on her mule, and the yaksha Jambhala, on the right.
The teachings in this volume are drawn largely from the writings of the great master Longchenpa and the root texts of the Khandro Nyingthig itself. The Third Dzogchen Rinpoche begins by discussing the correct way to study and practice the Dzogchen teachings. He then presents the outer and inner preliminary practices, or ngondro, which are considered essential for the correct practice of Dzogchen, as they ensure the practitioner has a solid grounding in the fundamentals of the Buddhist tradition.
