More Description

In the early days of Vajrayana few Tibetan Lamas visited Britain, and eager students were often prepared to travel considerable distances to receive instruction. Yet some sought out a young Englishman recently returned from the Himalayas. Inspired by the magic and mystery of Tibet, they were keen to discover the lived meaning. Ngak'chang Rinpoche's teachings were simple, direct, and experiential. The four evening talks contained here deal with the themes studied by everyone exploring Buddhism in depth: the four noble truths, eightfold path, causality, compassion and refuge. This material is discussed in creative contemporary English, and presented from a perspective informed by Dzogchen. Rinpoche was first asked to teach by G tsulma Ts ltrim Zangmo, a Western nun whom Rinpoche named ' -Z r Nyima after she received Dzogchen transmissions from him. ' -Z r Nyima means Rays of the Sun and this book is dedicated to the memory of this extraordinary English woman.
