Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Anyen Rinpoche flawlessly presents the reader with the unique perspective that belongs to a true scholar-yogi: that the most essential insights within the Buddha’s teachings—be they of the Middle Way, Prajnaparamita, or Dzogchen—are not only mutually supportive and without any conflict, but describe the same nature of reality. A must-read for philosophers and practitioners." —Erik Pema Kunsang, author of Wellsprings of the Great Perfection and compiler of Blazing Splendor

"This book beautifully demonstrates the profound unity of study and practice at heart of Tibetan Dzogchen tradition. Remarkably accessible, this book is essential reading for anyone attempting to understand or practice Dzogchen today." —John Makransky, author of Awakening Through Love

“In the rich Tibetan tradition of oral commentary, Anyen Rinpoche draws from personal experience and deep understanding to breathe fresh life into Mipham Rinpoche’s classic.” —Douglas Duckworth, author of Mipam on Buddha-Nature

"This is a wonderful manual for dedicated practitioners to study and contemplate."—Venerable Gyatrul Rinpoche

“A book that adds a most important aspect to the discovery of Mipham Rinpoche's original, genial understanding of the dharma, for it expounds quite clearly his approach to and explanation of Dzogchen. It is definitely a must for anyone interested in the topic!”—Elías Capriles, University of The Andes

Meet the Author

Anyen Rinpoche was born in Amdo, Tibet. His lineage can be traced back directly to the renowned Dzogchen master Patrul Rinpoche, author of Words of My Perfect Teacher. Anyen Rinpoche's training included more than fourteen years of intensive study combined with solitary retreat before he obtained the degree of khenpo (master teacher) and became the head scholar of his monastic university in Kham, Tibet. Rinpoche is known for his profound understanding of the scriptures as well as his easy-to-understand interpretation of them. He has taught extensively in Tibet and China and now mentors students throughout Southeast Asia, Japan and North America.

Allison Choying Zangmo is a student of Anyen Rinpoche and his root master, Tsara Dharmakirti Rinpoche. She has been studying Tibetan language and Buddhism under Anyen Rinpoche's personal guidance for the past ten years. She is Anyen Rinpoche's personal translator for both Dharma talks and textual translations. She lives in Denver, Colorado.
