Reading through the introduction now. Very insightful.
It's precious to hold such sublime scriptures.
Very grateful for Arnoud who made it possible for me to have access to it.

"The essence of meditation practice is to let go of all your expectations about meditation. All the qualities of your natural mind -- peace, openness, relaxation, and clarity -- are present in your mind just as it is. You don't have to do anything different. You don't have to shift or change your awareness. All you have to do while observing your mind is to recognize the qualities it already has."
--- Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche

Just got mine today, at the same time as Norbu Rinpoche's Cuckoo of Instant Presence. :smile:

This looks amazing, and I would love to get it, but is it something a fledgling practitioner would be able to comprehend? :emb:

Agreed. I have been glancing over chapters that have piqued my interest. Especially since Malcolm generously gives a concise summary of each chapter in the introduction. Extremely helpful. :thumbsup:

Footnote 580 in chapter 40 (The Praise) says that, “The innumerable sentient beings of the six realms of samsara are innate seeds within one’s heart center.”

Hmm, that is very interesting. I would like to understand this better. Is this literal or figurative or something else all together?

It's a two volume box set containing two of the 17 tantras. If you practice Dzogchen, and that doesn't wet your whistle, then I don't know what will... :thumbsup:

It refers to the bijas in consciousness that generate the appearances of the six realms.

Ok, makes sense. It is about the appearances of the 6 realms. I thought for a second that something else might be going on. But then again, each individual has their own basis, so this quote must be about the bijas in each consciousness. Thanks. I’m sure I’ll have more questions. :thumbsup:
