The origins of this book come from the same cycle of teachings as The Tibetan Book of the Dead. Written by Padmasambhava, who helped to establish Buddhism in Tibet, the text was rediscovered centuries later and has been widely taught as an oral commentary since then. Giving instruction on the method of self-liberation, it presents the essence of Dzogchen. As this is regarded as one of the most advanced and esoteric teachings of the Buddha, practitioners seek out helpful commentary to guide them through the material. Self-Liberation through Seeing with Naked Awareness does just this - presenting this traditionally advanced teaching in such a way to make it accessible for Western students.

Industry Reviews
