FUNDAMENTAL MIND: The Nyingma View of the Great Completeness

Khetsun Sangpo Rinbochay provides an illuminating, expansive, and practical commentary on Mi-pam-gya-tso's incisive work on the Great Completeness view of ultimate reality, called The Meaning of Fundamental Mind, Clear Light.

Fundamental Mind begins with a biography of Mi-pam-gya-tso, after which Khetsun Sangpo Rinbochay explains the aim of the book--the differentiation of mistaken mind and fundamental mind. The main theme is primordial enlightenment in the basal clear light, self-arisen pristine wisdom. The emphasis is on being introduced to and identifying fundamental mind in naked experience through a lama's quintessential instructions.

The combination of topic, well-known authors, and accessible presentation of the material should make this an important book for practitioners.
