A Summary of the View, Meditation, and Conduct
During this one-day workshop, Dr Alan Wallace will give an oral transmission and commentary to a core Dzogchen composed by the late Yangthang Rinpoche, one of the great vidyādharas, or realized Dzogchen masters of recent times.
rawing from his great learning and profound meditative experience, Yangthang Rinpoche composed the short meditation manual, entitled A Summary of the View, Meditation, and Conduct, in which he synopsizes the basic framework of the practice of the Great Perfection, which is regarded by many as the pinnacle of Tibetan Buddhism. This text presents the investigation of the mind in a radically empirical, rational way, which is both profoundly contemplative as well as rigorously scientific.
