A Heart Jewel for the Fortunate,

Pointing Out Instructions of the Great Perfection

by Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche
Teachings by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche
Nalanda West, April 24-26, 2009
Beginning in February 2021, our monthly subscribing members will receive a series of five teachings given by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche on one of his most treasured texts by Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche, "A Heart Jewel for the Fortunate" (also known as the Nying Nor). If you are not currently a subscribing member and would like to know more, please visit our Membership page.

Lama Tharchin Rinpoche received this teaching directly from Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche and he turned to it again and again when guiding students along the Dzogchen path. Lama Tharchin Rinpoche said:

"This very special heart advice by Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche introduces the view of Dzogchen Great Perfection, which is our own undefiled original nature, naturally manifest awareness, fully enlightened Buddhahood. Once recognized, meditation offers the method to maintain that view. How this is integrated into our daily lives is called conduct. This pith teaching contains the essence of the three sections of Dzogchen – sem-dé (mind class), long-dé (space class), and men-ngak-dé (Upadesha pith instruction class). As the teachings of the Great Perfection elucidate the mind’s essential nature, their benefit isn’t limited only to those practicing a particular tradition. Anyone with an interest in enhancing spiritual practice, whether a beginner or with years of experience, can find a wealth of profound advice in such teachings."

Lama Tharchin Rinpoche's teachings on the Heart Jewel from Naropa University, September 2005, are also available. Rinpoche was working on a commentary of the text before he passed and we hope to make it available to students soon. We will post more information here when it becomes available.
