Buddhahood Without Meditation
Author: Dudjom Lingpa
A fully revised new edition, the result of a thorough reexamination of the original English translation in an effort to clarify the terminology of Dudjom Lingpas text for western students. This work, Nang-jang, or Refining Ones Perception, presents the view of Dzogchen through the approach known as threg-chod (cutting through solidity), said to be a direct transmission so powerful that just hearing it read aloud ensures that the listener will escape the suffering of cyclic existence. These instructions were received by the nineteenth-century master Dudjom Lingpa in a visionary dialogue with fourteen enlightened beings, including Avalokiteshvara, Vajrapani, Longchenpa, and Saraha. The Dudjom lineage, based on the terma revealed by Dudjom Lingpa and his immediate rebirth, His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche, late head of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism, is one of the principal modern lineages of Dzogchen transmission.
