Yukhok Chöying Rangdrol Series
Embodiment of the three lineages, three roots, and all sources of refuge,
Chöying Rangdrol, in your kindness you are without equal.
Hold us with your compassion in this life, the next and the bardo state,
And grant your blessings so that we embark upon the path to liberation!
Texts by Yukhok Chatralwa Chöying Rangdrol (g.yu khog bya bral ba chos dbyings rang grol, 1872–1952), including extracts from his Ngöndro Compendium, a commentary on the Longchen Nyingtik preliminary practices:
An explanation of The Vajra Verses on the Natural State, a revelation of Jigme Lingpa, which describes the pure awareness that is the natural state of the mind and how all the qualities of the path and fruition are complete within it.
In these brief notes, Chöying Rangdrol explains what is meant by the 'youthful vase body', and outlines how liberation occurs in the intermediate state (bardo), and how delusion develops should we fail to recognise the nature of bardo appearances.
These notes discuss the ālaya, or 'ground of all', as well as the ālaya-consciousness (ālaya-vijñāna) and other forms of consciousness from a practical, experiential perspective, rather than a scholastic or theoretical point of view. They drew upon the sayings and explanations of such masters as Adzom Drukpa, Tertön Sogyal and Dudjom Lingpa.
