A favourite of Tibetans and recommended by the Dalai Lama and other senior Buddhist teachers, this practical guide to inner transformation introduces the fundamental spiritual practices common to all Tibetan Buddhist traditions.
Words of My Perfect Teacher is the classical commentary on the preliminary practices of the Longchen Nyingtin - one of the best-known cycles of teachings and a spiritual treasure of the Nyingmapa school - the oldest Tibetan Buddhist tradition.
Patrul Rinpoche makes the technicalities of his subject accessible through a wealth of stories, quotations, and references to everyday life. His style of mixing broad collquialisms, stringent irony, and poetry has all the life and atmosphere of an oral teaching. Great care has been taken by the translators to render the precise meaning of the text in English while still reflecting the vigor and insight of the original Tibetan.
Paperback, 457 pages. Vistaar Publications (Indian Edition), 1998. Translated by the Padmakara Translation Group.
