Synopsis:
The long-awaited reprint of this monumental and definitive study of the oldest school of Tibetan Buddhism. This is one of the master works of recent Buddhist scholarship. Written by the late head of the Nyingma sect, His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche, the book covers in detail and depth both the main teachings and the history of the Nyingma tradition.

In the section on the teachings, Dudjom Rinpoche delineates the entire range of the Buddhist spiritual and philosophical systems. These form a dynamic gradation of experience, from the mundane level of cyclic existence to that of the Great Perfection, Dzogchen.

In the section on the history of the school, a fascinating account is given of the religious development of Tibet, from the seventh century until the present day. Included are numerous biographies of the major teachers in the lineage, and a rectification of misconceptions and criticisms concerning the Nyingma school. Extensive notes and records of source materials round out a volume of immense importance.

"It is a work which communicates the highest wisdom of the Nyingma lineage to the English-speaking world." Shenpen Dawa Rinpoche.
