An essential guide to Patrul Rinpoche's classic work, providing background information to the text and illuminating detail. Khenpo Ngawang Pelzang was a close disciple of Patrul Rinpoche, from whom he received direct instructions on how to study and practice with this text, and his notes bring the Words of My Perfect Teacher into perspective with an interesting overview. Beginning with a general introduction on how to approach the teachings, it goes through the original book chapter by chapter, filling in the background.
Translated in a joint project between the Dipamkara group under the guidance of Alak Zenkar Rinpoche and the Padmakara translation group. "Anyone with a true interest in the teachings of the Buddha, and especially the practice of Dzogchen, will treasure Patrul Rinpoche's Words of My Perfect Teacher as a simply indispensable source of teachings on all practices, whether preliminaries or main. How wonderful now to have this guide, a priceless treasure of explanation, clarification, and practical advice from the heart of the great oral lineage of the Great Perfection, handed down by Patrul Rinpoche himself and recorded by Khenpo Ngawang Pelzang, one of the most influential Dzogchen masters of recent times." Sogyal Rinpoche.
