A könyv tartalmáról

This is a classic commentary on the preliminary practices of Longchen Nyingthig, a cycle of teachings of the Nyingma school. Patrul Rinpoche teaches through a wealth of stories, quotations, and references to everyday life, giving the book the atmosphere of an oral teaching. This is a new and revised edition.

For more than a century, The Words of My Perfect Teacher has served as a guide to the spiritual practices common to all four major schools of Tibetan Buddhism. It is the classic commentary on the preliminary practices of the Longchen Nyingthig cycle of teachings--the great spiritual treasure of the Nyingmapa school, the oldest of the Tibetan Buddhist traditions. The author, Patrul Rinpoche, makes his subject accessible through a wealth of stories, quotations, and references to everyday life. His sense of poetry and irony, and his warm, colloquial style infuse the text with the atmosphere and vitality of an oral teaching.

This second, revised edition is the result of a detailed and painstaking comparison of the original Tibetan text with the English translation by the Padmakara Translation Group. The new edition also includes translations of a postface written a century ago by the first Jamgon Kongtrul Rinpoche, and a new preface by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"For all teachings on all practices, whether preliminaries or main, this text is indispensable."--Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, author of Heart Treasure of the Enlightened Ones and The Wish-Fulfilling Jewel

Patrul Rinpoche(1808-1887) was one of the greatest Tibetan teachers of the nineteenth century. Famous for his precise and direct style, he shunned high monastic office and lived the life of a homeless wanderer, writing his book in a rustic hermitage under an overhanging rock.
