Synopsis

Mahamudra
and Dzogchen are perhaps the most profound teachings within all of Tibetan
Buddhism. The experience of
Mahamudra,
or "great symbol," is an overwhelming sense of extraordinary clarity,
totally open and nondualistic.
Dzogchen,
or "great perfection," is the ultimate teaching according to the
Nyingma tradition and also represents the pinnacle of spiritual development.
These are the two paths that provide practitioners with the most skillful means
to experience the fully awakened state and directly taste the reality of our
mind and environment. And yet these concepts are notoriously difficult to grasp
and challenging to explain. In
Wild
Awakening,

Tibetan Buddhist master Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche presents these esoteric
teachings in a style that reveals their surprising simplicity and great
practical value, emphasizing that we can all experience our world more
directly, with responsibility, freedom, and confidence. With a straightforward
approach and informal style, he presents these essential teachings in a way
that even those very new to Tibetan Buddhism can understand.
