The teachings and commentary in this book are based on a profound text on the nature of mind called The Seven Mirrors of Dzogchen by Drenpa Namkha. He was a great Tibetan master in the late seventh/ early eighth century from the ancient land of Zhang Zhung, which later became part of Tibet. It is one of the essential texts of dzogchen, the highest teaching in the Tibetan Bön tradition and some Tibetan Buddhist lineages. Dzogchen points out the nature of one’s mind as clear and open, aware, and the source of all positive qualities in life.
With his ability to bring the deep teachings of ancient texts into the modern world and make them relevant and engaging for his students, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, through commentary and meditations, brings these ancient teachings to life. He shows how the mirrors – the reflection of our highest potential – are as applicable today as they were in the past. Exploring these teachings and applying them in our lives can help us open to our true nature.
