Thinley Norbu's books have become quite popular in the west, but in contrast to many other Tibetan teachers he did not seek publicity or large numbers of students. Since Thinley Norbu's death in 2011, Kunzang Gatshal has been guided by his sons, Dungse Garab Rinpoche and Dungse Jampal Rinpoche, other family members and senior disciples, and others.

Like a spontaneous cascade of wisdom nectar, the open and natural words of Thinley Norbu Rinpoche, uncomplicated by scholarly elaboration, flow here in the tradition of the direct transmissions of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the past. Through commentary on the Preliminary Practices (Ngöndrö) prayer from the treasure text of the great master Tragtung Düdjom Lingpa, insights into many central practices emerge in order to deepen understanding of the foundations of Vajrayana Buddhism. Also included in the book is a commentary on the Tsok Khang Dechen (Assembly Palace of Great Exaltation), the root text prayer of the second Kyabje Düdjom Rinpoche, Jigdrel Yeshe Dorje.
  • A phantasmagoria and tour-de-force, a sustained practice of vision and concision. Whenever I felt I was slipping away, he pulled me right back, into the zone.

    It's a fine balance; to satisfy certain clerical demands which historically privilege the progressive path to understanding and, simultaneously, describe the totalised experience which transcends all those pursuits and dallyings. Thinley Norbu herein manages to integrate the two; so that the ritual and practice requirements of the developed Buddhist, ecclesiastical tradition toward enlightenment are revealed simultaneously as metaphors for - and conduits of access to - being, here; emptiness, here; eternally now. All about us are the shining palaces and ornaments of space, all supposedly sentient or non-sentient beings are revealed as regal manifestations of emptiness; every face the luminous, undifferentiated glory of the insubstantial matrix where not a particle can be found. He maps out a chorale of epic non-difference and discloses it. And, ohhh... he paints some pretty pictures of majesty; intricate, sustained mandalas of gods and beasts and kings and retinues; infinite ornamentation hung as breathing baubles on the all issuing canvas of dharmadhatu; offering these formulations to brush aside hackneyed and dulled perception; a patient modulation and transformation of what is sensed, elbowing out misguided attributions of matter at the core. He really is a fine artist, in these repetitions and etchings; the vivid pictures themselves are enjoyable, even if you don't see through them, even if they don't transform your sofa and your world into a spaceship of light by integrating their paradigm into the heart of phenomena. In this way he pays due respect to the pantheons and symbols of Buddhism coincidentally revealing all incarnate deities for exactly what they are.

    And then - for the acres of space in between these tawdry gewgaws, nods to tradition, shining shopping channel wampum and the invaluable bling of transubstantiation that correct perception provides - he exercises his keen analysis. He is equally skilled in this; calling up tantric quotation after tantric quotation and, like a sharp, academic philosopher, disclosing the accurate necessity of emptiness, performing an exegesis of any thing-in-itself, so that each page and each subsequent page is as un-delimited and non-different as every bauble he inscribes along the line. Accurate, sustained, patient, reiterative and unwavering throughout its variations; this is a transmission, like everything else.

    Four stars instead of five because I'm not quite sure why Thinley Norbu gallops off after Western science sporadically. The gorier parts are those in which he rails against the nihilism of this conjectured science; though I'm not clear what he means by nihilism when he accuses science of it; he doesn't clarify or contextualize his term; he just goes on a rant. What this is about, I don't know, because western science is both increasingly assimilable to descriptions of dependent origination and wary of assigining immutable substance to phenomena. Norbu also berates those lamas who fawn after what they see as the successes of Western science. Longchen Rabjam occasionally used to blurt out against the 'idiots' and 'elephants' who, in his time, promulgated ignorance, but there was something comic and brief in his tongue-in-cheek impatience whereas Thinley Norbu is lengthy, and seems genuinely distressed, in this railing.

  • In November 2006, shortly after it was released, I posted a review of this book that was critical in tone. Within a week or so, upon further reflection, I realized to my great dismay and embarrassment that I had exercised terrible judgment, and immediately withdrew the posting.

    I have always had the very highest admiration for the author, and benefitted enormously from his earlier published works in English. My review was of use to no one, and therefore a grave error, since my true view was and remains that any contact with the teachings of this author is meaningful, and should therefore always be encouraged, and in no way discouraged.

    I therefore wish to apologize (again) to the author, and to those readers who came across my review during that brief period, as I did them a disservice.

    I also wish to apologize publicly to anyone associated with the author whom I may have insulted by suggesting that they inadequately assisted him to realize his intent and share his wisdom through this work. If any of those persons is interested to see it, she may contact me for a copy of the apology letter I wrote to the author in May 2007.

  • I believe this book is intended for those who have embarked on the life-changing, and potentially ego-shattering path of Ngondro, -specifically the short Dudjom Tersar Ngondro of which this is a commentary. For those who are fortunate enough to have encountered a genuine guide, and are engaged in this practice, this book is a great resource which can be read endlessly.

    As with any Dharma practice, reading it requires the utmost attention and perseverance, but the rewards are inconceivable. I do hold a considerably contrary opinion to the previous reviewer, "A Friend and Neighbor", in this regard: do not be mislead by someone reading without experience and sincerity. I believe that it is intended to be challenging, and a practice in and of itself to overcome habitual mental laziness to access it's true import, from paragraph to paragraph. In my experience each sentence can be held indefinitely, and absorbed indefintely, providing many levels of meaning.

    I have found in the course of reading many Dharma books in the english language that often things are either A. Watered down by being over-simplified, over-explained, and can tend towards being outright boring in this regard. . or B. They are strictly composed in the specialized language of Western Academia for an academic milieu, with a standardized terminology and style that would be almost as daunting to become fluent in as Tibetan itself. I have found that as with all of Thinley Norbu Rinpoche's books, this is a rare exception to both of these tendencies. He adeptly and creatively finds new ways to translate both words and concepts, instead of adhering to standardized forms of translation that in their crystallization have closed down meanings that are actually multilayered and meant to breathe with life. Rinpoche manages to resuscitate them, while using traditional metaphors and creating new ones for clarification. At the same time, he rigorously adheres to the traditional form of commentary, unfolding the meaning of each line of the Ngondro practice completely to it's final import, and thus illustrates that (as we often hear but fail to believe) --everything is contained within the Ngondro. Also true to the form, he cites from a large number of Sutras and traditional sources, -providing the benefit of fragments of translation of otherwise untranslated works, -or insightful re-translations of pieces that provoke new insights. Not to mislead you I will humbly admit that I have possessed this book for months, but haven't completed reading it. I am about half-way through, and I am taking my sweet time. I imagine I will be reading and re-reading it for a good while: It is a book that becomes a process, as you make progress in your own practice, new insights ensue and this text can help illuminate them. I keep it on my shrine, next to HH Dudjom Rinpoche's big red book and Dudjom Lingpa's "Buddhahood Without Meditation", which seems an appropriate place.

  • Amazing book truly amazing. If you are doing Ngondro practice this text is a must have. Thinley Norbu Rinpoche conveys his realization through the teachings in this nectarous text.
