Dzogchen is known as the direct path to realization. This book introduces the reader to a very ancient yet simple spiritual practice that provides direct insight into one’s true nature.
“Aimed at the general reader, Beyond Words is a lucid introduction to the profound teachings of the Great Perfection (Dzogchen Atiyoga) – the conclusive spiritual practices of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. Drawing on quotations from translated materials and secondary sources, the authors outline the philosophical, historical and practical perspectives of Dzogchen, as presented by their mentor Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.”
Dr Gyurme Dorje (SOAS), The Centre for Himalayan Studies
“Beyond Words is an exceptionally useful and inspiring digest of Dzogchen (Great Perfection) teachings and the teachers associated with them. The ancient prediction that Dzogchen would benefit many during these degenerate times, makes this comprehensive introduction especially relevant. The authors have made these profound teachings accessible and Beyond Words will be useful to both inexperienced and seasoned readers.”
Tsultrim Allione, author of Women of Wisdom
“An easily readable introduction to the principles of Dzogchen, as revealed by the renowned contemporary Tibetan master, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu. The text is enriched with many inspiring anecdotes of various Buddhist masters, which adds a poetic and experiential dimension to this book.”
