Description

An Introduction to the Bonpo Dzogchen Teachings of the Oral Tradition from Zhang-Zhung known as the Zhang-zhung snyan-rgyud.

A great compilation of ancient Dzogchen teachings, transmitted by the master Tapihritsa and here beautifully translated along with hagiographies of ancient masters and explanations of the preliminary ngondro practices of this Bon presentation of the tradition. Invaluable material on the practice of this formerly secret oral tradition concerning the unconditioned state of being. The texts of the Zhang-zhung Nyan-gyud, first written down in the 8th-century in the Zhang-zhung language, represent a continuous system of transmission.
