Just as the images on television are nothing more than light, so are our experiences merely the dance of awareness.
Often we form attachments to or feel enslaved by these experiences. But they are only reflections.
As easily as television pictures vanish when the channel is changed, the power of our experiences fades if we penetrate to the heart of reality - the light of the natural mind within everyone.
You Are the Eyes of the World presents a method for discovering awareness everywhere, all the time.
Longchen Rabjam (1308–1363) was born to a noble family of Tibet under many signs of auspiciousness. He showed great skill in all aspects of scholarship from an early age and excelled throughout his life in the practice and accomplishment of Dharma. His power in visualization techniques and ability to actualize miraculous appearances is well known throughout Tibetan history. Longchenpa had many pure visions where he was given direct instructions from Guru Padmasambhava and many other wisdom deities. Recognized as an emanation of Vimalamitra, Longchenpa's sharp acumen and prolific writings have made him one of Tibet's most renowned and precious teachers.
This book does not discuss how to turn ordinary life off, and it does not describe how to create beautiful spiritual experiences - it shows how to live within the source of all life, the unified field where experience takes place.
One of Longchenpa's most accessible texts. Essential for anyone practicing Dzogchen.
