This book, Pure Dzogchen, is a compilation of teachings by Geshe Dangsong Namgyal on Nature of Mind. It is often assumed that the path to liberation is very long, perhaps many lifetimes. In the Pure Dzogchen approach, because the Nature of Mind is not mixed with Sutra and Tantra, the process can provide swift results. From this perspective, meditation on the Nature of Mind is the most powerful way to purify eons of negative karmic patterns and liberate the mind. The Nature of Mind is beyond all belief and philosophies; its reality becomes directly self-evident.
Geshe Namgyal is a Rimé teacher, which embraces all the schools of Tibetan Buddhism and Bön. He has studied sutra, tantra and Dzogchen in both Bon and Gelupa monasteries in Tibet, Nepal and India.
