Our Pristine Mind by Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche

We are very excited that Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche's highly anticipated book is now available. With Our Pristine Mind, Rinpoche distills a rich and authentic heritage of Vajrayana Buddhist lineage into a uniquely modern and direct presentation that's of benefit to anyone interested in cultivating a state of unchanging happiness.

About the book from Shambhala Publications: The true nature of our mind is brilliant, clear, and joyful. But we don’t experience this reality amid the swirl of stresses, thoughts, and emotions of day-to-day life. Our Pristine Mind is a practical guide to uncovering our naturally comfortable state of mind and reconnecting with the unconditional happiness that is already within us. Using straightforward, accessible language, Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche leads us through the path of Pristine Mind meditation, a practice from the profound teachings known as Dzogchen. This book presents the entire journey of meditation, from the very beginning all the way to the complete happiness of enlightenment. It is a realistic, natural process that can be practiced and experienced by anyone.

Lama Tharchin Rinpoche deeply respected Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche and considered him one of his closest Dharma friends.

"Not only is Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche's knowledge vast as an authentic khenpo, but he has brought this knowledge into his experience, so that when he teaches he talks from his heart. This brings not just scholarly understanding, but true penetration and experience of Dzogchen practice." - Lama Tharchin Rinpoche
