The Circle of the Sun: Heart Essence Of Dzogchen (Paperback)
The Circle of the Sun by Traleg Kyabgon Rinpoche is a succinct elucidation of the theoretical framework, the pith instructions of Dzogchen. Traleg Kyabgon’ s translation and commentary of the 17th century Tibetan Dzogchen master Tsele Natsok Rangdrol, provides a uniquely modern perspective of this ancient text, bringing the theoretical framework of Dzogchen - Tekcho or cutting through, and Thogal or leaping over - to life. It is an excellent companion to his other work on Dzogchen called, Actuality Of Being, that contrasts the Dzogchen approach with the nine yana system and includes a strong practice component and advice for meditation. Circle Of The Sun defines many of the key terms associated with this school and explains the core beliefs and perspectives that direct the practitioner’ s path and practices to their final fruition, the uncovering one uncontrived authentic state. Tsele Natsok Rangdrol’ s text is considered to be one of the best if not the best summary of Dzogchen teachings in existence.
