Overview

A text belonging to the same cycle as The Tibetan Book of the Dead, this instruction on the method of  self-liberation presents the essence of Dzogchen, The Great Perfection, regarded in Tibet as the highest and most esoteric teaching of the Buddha. Teaching the attainment of Buddhahood in a single lifetime, this text was written and concealed by Guru Padmasambhava in the eighth century and rediscovered six centuries later by Karma Lingpa. The commentary by the translator is based on the oral teachings of Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche and Lama Tharchin Rinpoche.

I very much enjoyed this incredible book that provides an in-depth view into Dzogchen.
Religious Studies Review
This text is perhaps the clearest, most comprehensive and accessible of medium-length writing on rigpa and as such is highly recommended.
