Description - A Cascading Waterfall of Nectar by Thinley Norbu

This long-awaited magnum opus by a preeminent scholar and teacher consists of commentaries on two Tibetan texts of interest to students of Vajrayana Buddhism in the West. The main commentary is on a brief text concerning the preliminary practices (ngondro) that are the foundation of Vajrayana Buddhism: the Dudjom Tersar Ngondro ("New Treasure of Preliminary Practices of Dudjom"), a well-known 'treasure text' (terma) revealed by Dudjom Lingpa (1835-1904, a noted terton, or discoverer of treasure texts). The approach to ngondro discussed here is the one most commonly followed by Western practitioners. The second commentary is on a short prayer written by Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche. Together, these commentaries are the occasion for Thinley Norbu Rinpoche to impart his powerful insights into various aspects of the buddha dharma from the tantric point of view, and thus the book will be of interest even to readers who are not practicing the ngondro.
