  Wild Awakening: the Heart of Mahamudra and Dzogchen -- by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
Wild Awakening: the Heart of Mahamudra and Dzogchen -- by Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche


 
Seen as the culmination of all practice and study by the New translation Schools of Tibetan Buddhism, the experience of Mahamudra, or "great symbol," is an overwhelming sense of extraordinary clarity, totally open and nondualistic. Dzogchen, or "great perfection," is the ultimate teaching according to the Nyingma tradition and also represents the pinnacle of spiritual development.

Both lineages of meditation practice emphasize the ultimate state of awareness within and the clear and luminous nature of the mind. In this book, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, holder of the wisdom-lineages of both Dzogchen and Mahamudra, presents the view and practices of these two traditions with a pragmatic approach and informal style. He teaches that by applying ourselves to these practices, we can all experience our world more directly.
