AbstractThis first English translation of the book is one of the master works of recent Buddhist scholarship. Written by the great Nyingma master,His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche book covers in detail and depth both the fundamental teachings and the history of Tibetan Buddhism's oldest school. In the section on the teachings, Dudjom Rinpoche delineates the entire range of the Buddhist spiritual and philosophical systems. These form a dynamic gradation of experience,from the mundane level of cyclic existence (samsara) to that of the Great Perfection (dzogchen).

In the section on the history of the Nyingma School reader is given a fascinating account of the religious development of Tibet from the 7th century until the present day. Included are numerous biographies of the major teachers of the lineage. Extensive notes and records of source materials round out a volume that constitutes the most complete work of its kind available in the West.
