You should have received empowerment / direct introduction from a qualified Dzogchen master.

Malcolm, does the publisher always choose the release date?

Physical copies make everything better, holding dharma treasures is a treasure. :P
Thus, there is not a single one who has entered into this teaching who fails to attain buddhahood.

Thank you very much Malcolm. Truly extraordinary. How long did it take you to translate the whole text? Must have been a few days. :smile:

BTW, if anyone has lack of funds but has the requirements to read this text, please let me know. I will pay for three sets and shipping for those who can't afford it. It would be best if that was in the US as shipping overseas gets very expensive but let me know and I can see what I can do.
I still have one left to give away. Don't hesitate to contact me.

Thanks again Malcolm for this wonderful set. Truly something that will withstand the test of time. :twothumbsup:

The Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra (Vol 1) and The Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra (Vol 2), book signing and talk with Malcolm Smith

A Translation of the Rigpa Rangshar (Vol 1) and A Translation of the Rigpa Rangdrol (Vol 2)
Malcolm Smith

Foreword by Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche and Jean-Luc Achard

A complete translation of two of the eleventh-century Seventeen Tantras

The eleventh-century Seventeen Tantras are the most important texts in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of the Great Perfection. This boxed set provides two luminous translations. The first is the only complete English translation of the Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra, which is the major commentary tantra on all aspects of the doctrine of the Great Perfection. The second, the Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra, outlines the structure of Dzogchen tantras in general and also provides a detailed outline of the Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra.

Malcolm Smith also offers a comprehensive introduction and two vital appendices: (1) a brief historical account and survey of the Seventeen Tantras and (2) an examination of the themes of the Seventeen Tantras, translated from the commentary to the String of Pearls Tantra.
