As foundational teachings for Dzogchen practitioners, the seven trainings are framed as contemplations on impermanence, the adventitiousness of happiness and its short duration, the multiple causes of death, the meaninglessness of our worldly activities, reliance on the Buddha’s good qualities, the teacher’s pith instructions, and ultimately nonconceptual meditation on bliss and emptiness, clarity and emptiness, and reality itself. Translated by Kenneth Douglas and Gwendolyn Bays from Toussaint's French, corrected with the original Tibetan. At the time when, through benediction, my treasure will be found, gods, genies, and men, fierce as well as gentle, will come forth, and the wicked minds of Tibet and India will cause many evils to appear.

An accessible, inspiring book on one of the most important topics in Tibetan Buddhism, written by one of its renowned masters who has an international following of thousands. Some of the teachers then resorted to casting evil spells, whereupon the ḍākinī Mārajītā, ‘Tamer of Māra’, granted the Guru a wrathful mantra with which he caused lightning to strike and thereby liberate the evil schemers. Tirāhut (Tirhut) is a name for the old city of the kingdom of Videha, about 175 miles north-west of Vārāṇasī.

Proceeding next to Yangleshö, situated between India and Nepal, the Guru met Śākyadevī, daughter of the Newar king Puṇyadhara, and accepted her as his sādhana support and consort. For example, there were Amé Changchub Drekol, Gyü Changchub Shönnu, Rokben Namkha Yeshé, Nyang Deshin Shekpa, Pang Jetsen Trom, Sha Migocha, Ngab Mi and Ngab Dré, Che Gyatso Drak, Dré Sherab Drakpa.

Together they practised glorious Śrī Heruka, but were hindered by spirits, rākṣasas and magical creatures' intent on creating obstacles — causing a three year drought and, with it, famine and disease.It then miraculously transformed into an eight-year-old child, endowed with all the major and minor marks of perfection, and holding a vajra and a lotus. A hundred hundred thousand incarnations of U rgyen will appear­ the being of time past is not the Guru of future men. With the power of compilations and of books which give the , teachings of the Dharma, he invested him as Body of Fruition with the eight inner forms.
