“This short but incredibly profound tsok offering verse arose as a treasure from the enlightened mind of Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche, beginning with the terma’s symbolic proof of dakini script. As he says in the colophon to the treasure, "This was written by myself, the one known as Jigdral Yeshé Dorjé, from a deluded vision I had when I was 33 years old, in the 1st month, the 17th day of the Fire Rat Year. After the evening that the Dzogchen practitioner, Trulshik Dorjé, did hundreds of tsok fulfillments of the dakini for my health, in the early morning, I had a dream and heard a woman reciting these words clearly, and when I awoke, I remembered them. Later that day, there was an auspicious sign that I had recovered from my sickness." This tsok offering is unlike any regular tantrayana tsok. It belongs to the highest Clear Light vehicle, which is related to the result, fully awakened buddhahood. The vehicle of Clear Light brings this result to the path in order to make it manifest. Through practicing this tsok offering, we can purify our habit of believing in material phenomena as real. Those of the greatest capacity already know that all phenomena are the display of awareness (rigpa). For those who believe in the reality of apparent phenomena, this practice can purify this delusion into the dharmakaya, pure, stainless great emptiness. Through this practice, we can go beyond our ordinary dualistic mind to inconceivable wisdom mind where all phenomena naturally appear as the three kayas. This practice is more powerful than any done through mental creation’s effort. Because this practice is related to Clear Light wisdom, effortless, beyond mind, one moment of recognition of awareness is equal to doing one eon of practice with mental creation and effort.” –  Lama Tharchin Rinpoche
