The root text of Longchenpa's Thirty Pieces of Advice translated from Tibetan by Elio Guarisco
Longchenpa Trimed Wözer (1308-1363) was one of the most important Dzogchen masters of Tibet. His scriptural learning and realization were equal to those of the famous saints who graced the land of India, and true to his words of advice, his was a disciplined life spent in forest and mountain hermitages.
After giving a clear and concise introduction to the principles and practice of Dzogchen, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu explains each verse in the context of Longchenpa’s spiritual experience in a way that is relevant to us as individuals in our time.
