Title: Inborn Realization

Secondary Title: A Commentary on His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche's Mountain Retreat Instructions

Description: Based on the firm foundation of intellectual study and contemplation, Mountain Retreat Instructions (Richo) is a meditation manual that brings forth vivid realization, making the results of meditation more tangible in your experience. These teachings directly usher the realization of loving-kindness, compassion, and respect, while going beyond all ego-clinging and grasping.

Throughout Buddhist history—including when Buddhism came to Tibet from the Holy Land of India—combining intellectual study with meditation was the essential practice. In particular, Richo was very openly used in all the Practice Lineages of Tibetan Buddhism, especially the Nyingma and Kagyu schools. The teachings always mention that individuals should spend time in hermitages and go to the mountains until they stabilize their realization because there are fewer distractions. Mountain retreat means “hermitage”—it is one of the best places to make yourself strong so you are not disturbed by all the fears and habitual patterns that are not healthy for anyone. Practicing in a hermitage makes it easier for the old habitual patterns that prevent our realization and disturb our peace of mind to subside. That is why the Buddha and Guru Padmasambhava always recommended practicing in mountain retreat.

Many teachers gave Mountain Retreat teachings, and among them, these instructions were taught by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche, one of the great masters of the 20th century who was predicted by Guru Padmasambhava.

Includes a complete translation of Mountain Retreat Instructions by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche.
