Guhyagarbha Tantra: The Secret Essence


Available to Shambhala students who have completed Vajrayana Seminary or Sacred World Assembly.

This book presents the introductory teachings on tantra given by the Sakyong in 1999 and 2000 based on the
Guhyagarbha Tantra and its commentary by Mipham Jamyang Gyatso (“Mipham the Great”). In many ways, it is an instruction manual for ngöndro and sadhana practice that shows how central and essential is the path of identifying with the view of great equality and great purity.

Each chapter elaborates a central theme, such as:

• The vajrayana approach to motivation

• The nature of the vajrayana transmission

• Shamatha and vipashyana on the vajrayana path

• The nine-yana unfolding of the view of equality and purity

• Pure appearance and deity practice

• Kyerim and dzogrim

• Mandala and mantra

• Ground, path, and fruition tantra
