Overview

Like a spontaneous cascade of wisdom nectar, the open and natural words of Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, uncomplicated by scholarly elaboration, flow here in the tradition of the direct transmissions of
Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the past. Through commentary on the
Preliminary Practices (Ngöndrö) prayer from the treasure text of the great master Tragtung Düdjom Lingpa, insights into many central practices emerge in order to deepen understanding of the foundations of
Vajrayana Buddhism. Also included in the book is a commentary on
Tsok Khang Dechen (Assembly Palace of Great Exaltation), the root text prayer of the second Kyabje Düdjom Rinpoche, Jigdrel Yeshe Dorje.


Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Thinley Norbu's commentary is not only profound but also refreshingly clear, making it valuable and accessible to both experienced practitioners and those new to this path."—Tricycle

“This magnificent original work on the ngöndro practice of Tibetan Buddhism is cause for celebration. Rich with scriptural citations, incisive reasoning, and personal realization, it shows that the ngöndro is not just a preliminary teaching but the quintessence of the Vajrayana path. All Vajrayana followers must treasure this masterpiece of profound teachings by one of the greatest masters of our age.”—Tulku Thondup, author of Peaceful Death, Joyful Rebirth and The Healing Power of Mind

"A Cascading Waterfall of Nectar is one of the most profound dharma books I have ever read. Read it slowly, like poetry, savoring and contemplating each sentence, and you will be rewarded with the highest Buddhist view."—Melvin McLeod, Editor-in-Chief of the Shambhala Sun and editor of the Best Buddhist Writing series
