The teachings presented in As It Is, Vol. II, are primarily selected from talks given by Kyabje Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche in 1994 and 1995, during the last two years of his life. The emphasis in Volume II is on the completion stage and practices associated with it.
“Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche’s direct oral instructions inspired admiration, delight in practice, and deep trust and confidence in the teachings among those who met him. His words always helped their minds, in the sense that applying even some of his advice reduced disturbing emotions and naturally allowed compassion, love and insight to blossom.
This was proven by the actual experience of many, many people.”
— Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche
“In essence the three poisons are the three wisdoms. One needs to know what is, as it is. To be able to transform poison into medicine, you definitely need pith instructions. Through the pith instructions, the suffering of a sentient being can be transformed into wisdom. The Ati Yoga path means to possess the panacea, the universal remedy that can cure all diseases.”
— Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche
