His Eminence Kunde Rinpoche has composed this book in 3 parts for readers who are interested in Buddhism in general and Dzogchen practice of Vajrayana Buddhism in particular. Dzogchen, literally “Great Perfection’ is the primary teaching of Nyingmapa school of Tibetan Buddhism. The book is presented in questions and answers form to provide structural learning processes from preliminary practice path in part 1 for beginners to understand the basic principles of  how one should generate one’s mind to prevent afflictive emotions, conditions to practice the Dharma, understanding of the six realms of existence and methods of purifying wrongdoings, etc. Part 2 concisely provided the teachings and learning manuals on the method of actualizing Buddhahood in one life time through one physical body by first practicing the Shamatha (calm-abiding) Mediation to the inexhaustible treasure of highly secret great perfection practice (Atiyoga). The Clear Light Great Perfection practice consists of four parts: trekcho (cutting through) practice, thogal (leap-over) practice, clear light dream practice, and phowa practice.  Finally, part 3 describes the intermediate state (Bardo) experience of Peaceful and Wrathful deities, as His Holiness Pema Kalsang puts it in his Words of Praise,  “guides us, such as how one should nakedly experience the great unconditioned dharmakaya during the intermediate state” based on Dzogchen practice.
