Striking the Vital Point in Three Statements
Introducing directly the face of rigpa itself.
Deciding upon one thing and one thing only.
Confidence directly in the liberation of rising thoughts.
A series of texts based on the final testament of Garab Dorje, a key Dzogchen instruction known as 'Striking the Vital Point in Three Statements' (tshig gsum gnad brdegs):
Mipham Rinpoche boils the practice of Trekchö down to the three crucial points of knowing the essence of mind, sustaining that recognition in meditation and allowing thoughts to subside beyond benefit and harm.
