Three traditional Nyingma teachings selected here for contemporary Buddhists who want to improve the quality of their practice during the three periods of the day - during meditation, during their daily life, and during sleep.
Formerly titled Ancient Wisdom, this book contains Transforming Felicity and Adversity into the Spiritual Path by Jigme Tenpe Nyima; Releasing Oneself from Essential Delusion by Lochen Dharma Shri; and Illumination of Primordial Wisdom by Dudjom Rinpoche. Guidelines for calm abiding and insight meditation are presented from the Dzogchen perspective, and practices for bringing the daily experiences of pleasure and pain into the spiritual path are included in the teachings on thought transformation, or Lojong. Finally, the teachings on dream yoga guide the practitioner in the conscious control of the dream state, as well as after death.
