An extensive commentary by the late Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche on the renowned basic Nyingma text by Patrul Rinpoche, the Practice of View, Meditation and Action: A Discourse Virtuous in the Beginning, Middle and End. The text covers such topics as the determination to be free of samasara, the urgent need to practice, the transformation of the senses, aggregates and emotions, motivation, and the path of the sutras and tantras.
"Patrul Rinpoche was a great bodhisattva who came to the land of snows in more recent times. This great, sublime, and learned practitioner gave this teaching for the benefit of those desiring liberation. It comprises all the essential instructions and because of the profound meaning it contains and the beautiful language in which it is expressed, it really is like an elixir for reviving the dead." The Dalai Lama.
