Texts by and about Dezhung Rinpoche (sde gzhung rin po che, 1906–1987), one of the most important Sakya teachers of recent times renowned for his exceptional erudition and nonsectarianism:
- A Survey of the Fourfold Heart-Essence (Nyingtik Yabzhi) and the Heart-Essence of the Vast Expanse (Longchen Nyingtik) | Nyingtik Yabzhi
This brief explanation of the Fourfold Heart-Essence (Nyingtik Yabzhi) corpus and Heart-Essence of the Vast Expanse (Longchen Nyingtik) revelation was written in Seattle in the early 1960s in reply to a question from E. Gene Smith. Dezhung Rinpoche consulted Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, who clarified some points and added further notes. The text is thus included among the collected writings of both masters.
