Présentation de l'éditeur

"This book answers the question to the most concealed practice in the Bardo Todol, commonly known as The Tibetan Book of the Dead. What is the true intent of the Secret of the Four Wisdoms Gathered into the Clear Hollow Mysterious Passage of Vajrasatva? After eliminating all other possibilities you will discover that Trekcho and Togal are the one answer to this mystery.

The encounter with the Vajrasatva Mystery is an Imbedded Clue to Trekcho and Togal which reveal Clear Light Evenness, not only in the after death state, but equally in the living state.

Trekcho, Letting Go and Togal, the Four Stages of Soaring On or Skull Crossing are the deepest secrets of Dzogchen, the Natural Great Completion.

In Nyingma these are restricted secret practices kept from the public eye. Whereas, in the Kagyu school and Bonpo tradition these same methods are open to one and all. You are the decider on these two attitudes. Let your thought be lighted by the words of the Lion of the Sakyas,

“Ananda? I have set forth the Dharma without making any distinction of esoteric and exoteric doctrine; there is nothing, Ananda, with regard to the teachings that the Tathagata holds to the last with the closed fist.”

I hope you will find the freedom of your own experience in the detailed observations and in depth examinations of these secret methods of Dzogchen.

The text is in no way, nor tries to be a teaching text, a manual, nor a guidebook on Trekcho and Togal or Bardo, for I am in no way at all, a teacher, an expert nor a guide in these practices. Nor do I ever wish to be one. This essay is an answer to a life long question I have had since reading the Bardo Thodol as a young person. “What is the true meaning of Vajrasattva, the Mysterious Passageway and the Union of the Four Wisdoms?” It just so happens that after one goes through all possibilities of what this means one finally comes to the sacred secret teachings of Dzogchen’s Trekcho, Togal and Bardo. So I have had to explain what little that I know about these special secret practices to answer the primary question this text attempts to answer.

Why wade through the torrent of concepts on this when we can go directly to the clear, most reasonable and satisfactory answers that leave no shadow of hesitation?

Vajrasattva stands for the Primordial Clear Light Void as Love and Compassion. The secret Mysterious Way of the pure Clear Passage of Vajrasatva is the Kati, running from the Heart to the Eyes. Within this Kati are the Four Lamps. From Clear Light, through the Open Kati these Lamps give forth an arising to the Four Togal Appearances.

Since it is found in the highest wisdom texts from Dzogchen on Trekcho, Togal and Bardo and Tibetan’s favorite book on guidance in the afterlife, it is worthy of taking a serious look."

Biographie de l'auteur

"Since the age of eight years, Richard Prescott has been intrigued by the ways, philosophies and religions of East Asia. His last book Mortal Grounding: Cosmology and Consciousness was published 2008. This presentation, named Vajrasattva: The Secret of the Four Wisdoms. On Trekcho, Togal and Bardo was finished in 2013. After fifty-three years of study this is the forty-second manuscript. As a young person he was amazed by the question this book embraces. He studied Tibetan Buddhism for forty-three years, the last six years, in concentrated research to find a satisfactory solution that this book hopes to answer. There are three events that signify his life. He was born on April Fool’s Day, so, his love for humor and to make others laugh, for there is spontaneous freedom in laughter. The blessing of being married to the love of his life, Sarah Elisabeth Grace, for thirty-two swift years. They now live a peaceful life in Northwest Washington near Puget Sound. Then creating these forty-two books since 1975, have been the very best delights of his life."

HASH(0x8c2d7dec) étoiles sur 5 This book embodies all the reasons Togal is not publicly discussed 6 juin 2015
Par Diana - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The publication of this book demonstrates all the reasons that advanced Dzogchen is not publicly discussed. While the author admits that the book reflects what he learned by reading rather than practice or from a teacher, the writing itself is the exact opposite of what would be useful for anyone really trying to learn Dzogchen.

Traditionally, one would have to practice dharma under a realized lama, who in addition to arranging for the various empowerments necessary to practice dzogchen, would assure that the practitioner had a thorough experience of each stage in the meditation, and would ask questions of the student every step of the way to assess the student's progress. This usually takes decades. The standards required before one would be qualified to write on the subject are far higher.

For anyone who has read a text written by a dzogchen practitioner, even if it is on an obstensibly unrelated subject such as poetry, the clarity and spaciousness of their perspective is immediately clear. This book has none of that, just confused assertions like a high school student trying to write an essay on something of which he has no experience. It seems the author's process for writing was to read everything that was easily available in English about khregschod and thodrgal and attempt to reduce it to a set of conceptual correspondences. Most of the writing consists of assertions such as 'kadag is tregchod' and 'all appearances are togal'. While some of these have a basis in Tibetan writings, others are the author's conjecture, and 100% of them entirely miss the point of Dzogchen. Approaching dzogchen from this perspective will create obstacles for anyone who attempts to learn authentic dzogchen after reading the book.

Even if one were to purchase this book to see the list of references, one would be disappointed. The author has included many texts from other, unrelated systems such as Kalachakra, and does not seem to have read many of the Dzogchen texts that have been translated under the direction of actual Dzogchen practitioners.

The attempt to reduce an experiential, largely nonconceptual practice such as dzogchen to an artificial web of concepts not only throws the baby out with the bathwater, but castrates the would-be practitioner from producing authentic dzogchen experiences in the future.

HASH(0x8a632054) étoiles sur 5 Fount of Nectar 15 juin 2015
Par elisha_hermit - Publié sur

This is really quite a breath-taking sustained reverie that ultimately is a profound meditation, refined clearly through deep practice and realization, of some of the most subtle aspects of Tantra and Dzogchen with the latter being the ultimate focus of this amazing text. It is not someone with only intellectual or with passing conceptual interest in Buddhism, nor is it for those seeking a "how to" six steps guide. But if one comes to this work already having spent some time in the fires of transformation and with intimations of spontaneous presence and the vast illuminated void then meditating on this text--slowly-- will bear much fruit. It should be read several times, with each reading comes a deepening. This is a book that makes contact with infinity. If you are looking for an introduction go elsewhere but if you can move with some ease within the more nuanced aspects of Dzogchen teachings then Vajrasattva will open you to new levels of realization. There really is nothing else quite like this book. It will no doubt be misunderstood by many but will be a source of exquisite nectar for those who can read it with spaciousness.

HASH(0x8a632018) étoiles sur 5 No Secret: this is bad 3 octobre 2014
Par Karen Jones - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Not for the Novice. I've been reading and studying Buddhism for over twenty years and yet I could not make sense of the writings/teachings in this book. It read as pompous and condescending; I found it and the author very irritating. It was almost as if the author was scolding the reader for even reading this book. I found nothing beneficial or inspirational in any word at all.

Terrible book, lacks respect, full of conceptual ideas that can very well mislead people, and an attitud of superiority that equates an inflated ego wirh budahood.

HASH(0x8a63236c) étoiles sur 5 Beautifully poetic interpretation of dzog-chen. 29 août 2014
Par mahipal - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The author spells out his elegant dzogchen-inspired thoughts on the ultimate realty in an extensive panoramic exposition. As he says in the end of the book "My words are the feelings of my heart inspired by concepts and systems, old and new, yet always in my own words, with exception of a few, thousand or more years old sayings of Siddhartha Sakyamuni, which are in historical context." This freedom from a literal translation of an ancient text leaves him the freedom to create a tremendously inspiring poetic interpretation. Thank You!
