by Chgyal Namkhai Norbu
Chgyal 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.
Chgyal Namkhai Norbu was born in 1938 in eastern Tibet and received there the ful training of an incarnate lama. He is a renowned scholar, specializing in the history and culture of Tibet, and is widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest living master of Dzogchen. He has lived in the West for many years and has taught Dzogchen at retreats around the world.
