In Dzogchen Deity Practice, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche exactly defines this training, offering key points on how to engage in sadhana as a pure Dzogchen yogi. Being one of the greatest Dzogchen Masters of the last century, his unique teaching style was direct, simple, and powerful, a comfortable ambiance created by his compassionate humility that opened one up to being able to absorb his profound words. He was fearless in teaching the view, meditation, and conduct of the Great Perfection, due to the strength of his realization. Although Dzogchen Deity Practice uses the peaceful and wrathful practice as its basis, the efficacy of these teachings on development and completion stage practices apply to many other sadhanas as well.
It is a hands on guide to engaging in the skillful methods of Vajrayana that prepare us for this life’s experiences as well as what will unfold when we die and are in the intermediate state or the Bardo. The beautiful poetry offered expresses a reality beyond our mundane everyday life and helps our minds to be open and aware.
“I feel certain that there is not the slightest difference between the state of mind of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and Samantabhadra. For those who regard him as Vajradhara in person, the perfect root guru and the support for their supplications, he is definitely extraordinary. To summarize, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche was an incredible master, both learned and accomplished.”
