Instructions for the Concise Preliminary Practices of the New Treasure of Dudjom
by Jane Tromge (Chagdud Khadro)
Foreword by H.E. Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche
Softcover | 140 pages
Also available in eBook formats

This commentary on teachings by Chagdud Rinpoche is a practical and accessible guide for students to use in directly engaging the preliminary practices (ngondro) which establish the foundation for the entire Vajrayana path. All traditions of Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism have ngondro practices, but among these the Dudjom Tersar Ngondro of the Nyingma tradition is probably the most concise in terms of recitations and sadhana practice. Hidden in the eighth century by Padmasambhava, it was intended for these times when few people have the leisure to practice.

"However, for practitioners with receptive minds, the Great Perfection (dzogchen) perspective can evolve from the ngondro practice itself. Its essence can be glimpsed each time the mind rests in intrinsic awareness (rigpa), in each experience of the absolute nature of Vajrasattva and the absolute lama in guru yoga. The Dudjom Tersar Ngondro—concise, unelaborate, and grounded in guru yoga—provides a superb means to open the door to recognizing the nature of mind. I hope that all who undertake it will transcend the rigors of the practices and find true joy in them." ~ Chagud Tulku Rinpoche
