Title: KINDLY BENT TO EASE US: PART THREE
Secondary Title: Wonderment
Description: Kindly Bent to Ease Us, by the renown Nyingma master Longchenpa, was translated by H. V. Guenther. This trilogy of the view, path, and fruit of the Vajrayana teachings (known in Tibet as the Trilogy of Finding Comfort and Ease) is an important introduction to rDzogchen practice by one of its foremost Vidyadharas.
Ranging from basic exposition to poetic vision, this trilogy, the Nyingma tradition's primary teaching on how to enter the path to enlightenment, is an essential foundation for all who seek enlightenment within the Nyingma tradition.
The third volume of Longchenpa's Trilogy shows the practitioner how to transcend ordinary limited perspectives using eight classic and evocative images that reveal the open nature of reality: dreams, wizardry, illusion, mirage, reflections, echoes, cloud lands, and phantoms. A chapter on each image gives clear instructions for meditation and post-meditation practice to awaken us to the magic of Being in its two forms the enchantment of samsara and the wonderment of nirvana, where the mind finds comfort and ease. Can be read independently of Parts One and Two. Priceless practice instructions for serious Dharma students.
