Buddhahood Without Meditation (Nang-jang)

Author(s): Dudjom Lingpa

Dzogchen | Tibetan Buddhism

Buddahood Without Meditation, widely referred to by its subtitle, Nang-jang (Refining One's Perception), presents the view of the Great Perfection through the approach know as t'hregchhod (cutting through solidity). It is a direct transmission so powerful that just hearing it read aloud ensures that the listener will escape the suffering of samsara. The Dzogchhen master Dudjom Lingpa (1835-1904) received these teachings in visionary dialogue with 14 enlightened beings, including Avalokiteshvara, Vajrapani, Longchhenpa and Saraha.

The Dudjom lineage, based on the hidden treasure teachings revealed by Dudjom Lingpa and his immediate rebirth, his Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche (1904-1987), late head of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism, is one of the principal modern lineages of the Great Perfection.

This second, revised edition is the result of a thorough reexamination of the original English translation in an effort to clarify the terminology and meaning of Dudjom Lingpa's text for Western students of the Great Perfection. The glossary has been revised accordingly and expanded to incorporate new terms. It includes the Tibetan text as edited by H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche as well as his structural analysis and outline.
