Kindly Bent to Ease Us, by the renowned Nyingma master Longchenpa, was translated by H. V. Guenther. This trilogy of the view, path, and fruit of the Vajrayana teachings (known in Tibet as the Trilogy of Finding Comfort and Ease) is an important introduction to Dzogchen practice by one of its foremost Vidyadharas.

Part 3 shows the practitioner how to transcend ordinary, limited perspectives using eight classic images that reveal the openness of reality: dreams, wizardry, illusion, mirage, reflections, echoes, cloud lands, and phantoms. A chapter on each image gives clear instructions for meditation and post-meditation practice to awaken readers to the magic of being in its two forms: the enchantment of samsara and the wonderment of nirvana, where mind finds comfort and ease.
