Dear Vajra Family,
We’re happy to announce the availability of the e-book of The Three Paths of Liberation containing Rinpoche’s teachings on the Base of the Santi Maha Sangha from Tashigar North (2006). It explains many points presented in The Precious Vase, such as the correct way of practicing the paramitas, different levels of Refuge, differences between various classes of tantra, advice regarding the practice of the Rushen and Semdzin, and information regarding several levels of realization.
Apart from the e-book, four downloadable videos with the same title also available, with Rinpoche’s teachings about the Base of the Santi Maha Sangha from the same retreat:
⋄ Part 1: Different schools and traditions; Base, Path and Fruit; Three Primordial Potentialities; Transmission and Guru Yoga
⋄ Part 2: The Four Mindfulnesses; Refuge and Bodhichitta; The Six Paramitas; emptiness and compassion
⋄ Part 3: Sutra, Tantra, and Dzogchen
⋄ Part 4: The Secret Mantra vehicles; the Sarma and the Nyingma traditions; the Outer Tantras; the Inner Tantras
These teachings are useful to all Dzogchen practitioners, not only those preparing for the Base Level exam.
We’d also like to encourage you to offer you karma yoga to Shang Shung Publications. We’re always looking for good editors (see http://www.shangshungpublications.org/help/), but if you have other skills that you feel could be useful to a publishing house, please send your application to firstname.lastname@example.org. By uniting our energies we can do more in order to make the precious teachings available to those who need them.
