The Notion of Fruit and Liberation in Dzogchen

The Notion of Fruit and Liberation in Dzogchen, by Jean-Luc Achard, translated from the french by Marianne Ginalski, PDF ed., Khyung-mkhar, November 2016, 13 pages.

Back Cover

The Fruit of the Dzogchen practice abides in the twofold realization of the Bodies (sku) and the Wisdoms (ye shes) which characterize the true mode of being of the natural state. This Fruit is semantically associated to the notion of Liberation (grol ba), and in particular to the various modes in which Liberation abides. This booklet deals with the specific representations associated with the notions of Self-Liberation (rang grol) and Primordial Liberation (ye grol).

As we have seen in issue 04, this Lamp is the same as the state of Awareness (rig pa) itself, i.e., the direct knowledge of the natural state. In the present context, Vimalamitra explains that the key points (gnad) used for intensifying its experience are tantric practices based on deity yoga.

The notion of Base in Dzogchen

The notion of Base in Dzogchen by Jean-Luc Achard; english translation by Marianne Ginalski with the assistance of the GDTC members. PDF ed., 10 pages. Price: 3,00 euros.

Backcover :
  
The notion of Base is amongst the main representations within the system of the Great Perfection. This Base, which is the expression of the real nature of the Mind, is defined according to a primordially pure Essence (ngo bo), a spontaneously accomplished Nature (rang bzhin) and an all-pervading Compassion (thugs rje). In this booklet, these three modalities called the Three Wisdoms of the Base, are described and explained according to canonical sources, i.e. the original Tantras of Dzogchen, as well as the exegetical works by Longchenpa (1308-1364).

Back cover:

The main key point of the Far-Reaching Lasso (rgyang zhags) relies on the immobility of the eyes as well as on the use of three gazes (lta stongs) associated with their respective posture. It is also connected to the special representations of the visionary anatomy as conceived in Dzogchen teachings, starting with the notion of channels of light ('od rtsa).
