A new commentary by Thrangu Rinpoche on the Third Karmapa's classic text on Buddha nature. In the nineteenth century Jamgon Kongtrul composed a commentary to the text, which Thrangu Rinpoche has used here as the basis for the teachings in this book.
According to Tibetan Buddhist tradition, human being's true nature, or Buddha essence, is the foundation from which all wisdom develops. In order to discover our Buddha nature, the meditator needs to know how to meditate correctly and must properly understand the reason for practicing meditation. We also need training in how the philosophy and practice come together in the development of insight. This text contains instructions on how to discover Buddha essence in ourselves.
"By wholeheatedly following these step-by-step instructions, we can experience the inexpressible wisdom and goodness of our mind. What could be more precious than that!" Pema Chodron.
"Thrangu Rinpoche explains the aspects of impermanence, permanence, temporality, and the eternal nature of the three kayas with great clarity and alacrity, showing readers the practical implications of these otherwise rarefied Buddhist concepts." Traleg Kyabgon.
