The Precious Treasury of the Way of Abiding
(Naylug Rinpochei Dzöd)
The Precious Treasury of the Way of Abiding, the first volume to be released in Longchen Rabjam's The Seven Treasuries series, is a treatise on the "four great samayas" of Dzogchen- ineffability, openness, spontaneous presence, and oneness.
In support of his presentation, Longchenpa quotes extensively from the Dzogchen Tantras, as well as from Garab Dorje, Nagarjuna, Shri Singha, Padmasambhava, and other great masters of the early Buddhist tradition.
The volume contains an introduction by the Venerable Tulku Thondup Rinpoche and a forward by His Eminence Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche. Chagdud Rinpoche, who has overseen the translation, underscores the importance of this work, saying it is truly a relic of the Dharmakaya. Hardcover.
