Description - Union of Dzogchen and Bodhichitta by Anyen Rinpoche

Through demonstrating the interrelationship of the outer, inner, and secret teachings and a textual analysis of the words of four renowned Dzogchen yogis, this book makes clear that the practice of Bodhichitta is a necessary aspect of every practice within Tibetan Buddhism. Unlike other books that present either the teachings of Bodhichitta or the teachings of Dzogchen as their own system of practice, this book presents them not even as complementary practices, but as a deconstructed inner and outer which are fundamentally intertwined. While Anyen Rinpoche acknowledges the profundity of the Dzogchen teachings, he dispels the myth that they are an effortless path to liberation, but rather shows that they are a progressive path that requires diligence, insight, and the compassionate mind of a bodhisattva. He presents a style of contemplation that combines Dzogchen meditation on the ultimate view with the generation of Bodhichitta, such as has been taught by Nyingmapa yogis throughout the centuries. This book presents the union of Dzogchen and Bodhichitta not only through philosophy and scripture, but also through concrete methods for practice.
