Buddhahood Without Meditation, widely known by its subtitle, Nang-jang (Refining Apparent Phenomena), presents the view of the Great Perfection (Dzogchen) through the approach known as trek-chöd (cutting through solidity).
This work - Nang-jang , (or Refining One's Perception) - presents the view of Dzogchen through the approach known as "trek-chod" (cutting through solidity), said to be a direct transmission so powerful that just hearing it read aloud ensures that the listener will escape the suffering of cyclic existence.
These instructions were received by the nineteenth-century master Dudjom Lingpa (1835-1904) in a visionary dialogue with fourteen enlightened beings, including Avalokiteshvara, Vajrapani, Longchenpa, and Saraha.
The Dudjom lineage, based on the terma revealed by Dudjom Lingpa and his immediate rebirth, His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche (1904-1987), late head of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism, is one of the principal modern lineages of Dzogchen transmission.
A fully revised new edition - the result of a thorough reexamination of the original English translation in an effort to clarify the terminology of Dudjom Lingpa's text for western students.
The glossary has been revised accordingly and expanded to incorporate new terms. Includes the Tibetan text as edited by H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche, as well as his Structural Analysis and Outline.
