Overview

The treasure text of Nuden Dorje renders a very clear and authentic account of the view and essential meditation of dzogchen the practice of nondual experience. The presentation is in the Men ngag style, a personal instruction distilling the author's own realization in a manner both beautiful and deeply meaningful. Short verses show with pithy clarity how the various aspects of dzogchen fit together. The text provides both an authentic portrayal of the practice and a clear instruction in how to apply it.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This work, also known as The Mirror of Clear Meaning, is a classic work of Tibetan Buddhism and perhaps one of the less accessible, not for its prolixity (as might be said of some of the more ancient texts from this tradition) but for its brevity. Writing in the 19th century Dorje adopted the Men ngag style, using brief, disconnected verses to express personal insight and experience. The essence of the work, as translated and expounded by Low, is a careful rejection of dualistic experience: "The notion of a doer and a deed is just a confusing illusion, like a dream or magic." Many readers should find this approach attractive, as it lacks the intense esotericism or complex cosmologies of other Tibetan Buddhist teachings. Recommended for most collections.

Narutos PoV: <p> That night, i slept in the hospital outside the ER. The next morning, a nurse woke me up, and i immidiately asked about Sasuke. "He has woken up, and he will live." She said, but she continued with a sad look on her face. "However, he has suffered brain damage that has caused him to lose most of his memory." I was shocked. "W-what?!" "I'm sorry, sir. We did everything we could, but the memory loss was inevitable." I asked to see him, and the nurse led me into his room. <p> Sasukes PoV: <p> I heard someone walk into the room, and i turned to see who it was. Maybe it wiukd be someone that i knew. It was a boy around my age with blond hair and blue eyes. He had these weird stripe things on his cheeks, and he was wearing a lot of orange. I still didnt remember a thing. The only thing i remembered was my first name and something about a ninja school. I remembered my age and what i looked like too, but i didnt know why i was here. The doctors had told me i was hit by a car, but you would think i could remember an event like that. They had also said i was protecting someone, according to witness reports. The boy suddenly ran over and hugged me, and i felt extremely awkward. Was i supposed to hug back? Who was he? Did i know him before the accident? "Um, who are you?" I asked him after the hug was over. I saw him blinking back tears, and i felt guilty. "Im your friend Naruto," he said, and i nodded. He wasnt familiar at all, but i guess we could be friends. We were before, right? The door opened again and a girl with pink hair walked in. She glared at Naruto (thats his name, right?) before walking over and smiling at me. To be honest, she was iinda creeping me out. "Who are you?" I asked. She smirked. "Im your girlfriend, Sakura."
