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.
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.
Nado Poizokhang grade all of their incense according to the 'potency', rarity and quantity of the ingredients contained in their blends. It does not mean that the ingredients in Grade D incense are of a lower grade than the A, B or C varieties. All grades contain only the purest natural herbs, barks and resins and the other grades (A, B and C) contain a greater potency of medicinal ingredients. The Grade D incense is a gentle harmonious blend, suitable for burning at all times.
