The Precious Treasury of the Genuine Meaning transcript of the oral teachings given by Khenpo Namdrol Rinpoche in 2012 at Orgyen Dorje Den in Alameda, CA has been completed and is now available to order.

Khen Namdrol Rinpoche taught the Precious Treasury or Tsig Don Dzod over a span of five years and he concluded the teachings in 2012.

This transcript completes the teachings on the Eighth Vajra Topic—One’s Own Realization by giving information about the 3rd and 4th visions of togal, as well as pertinent practice instructions that accompanies the experience of the visions. It continues with commentary on the Ninth Vajra Topic—The Optimal Extent, Tenth Vajra Topic—Appearances in the Bardo, and Eleventh Vajra Topic—The Ground of Liberation.

The Ninth Vajra Topic covers signs and extent of actual practice that defines the Dzogchen practitioner’s progress on the path. The Tenth Vajra Topic goes into great detail describing the natural bardo, bardo of death, and the bardo of existence, which includes the natural nirmanakaya realms. The Eleventh Vajra Topic gives an extensive description of the ground of liberation, which includes an explanation of dharmakaya, sambhogakaya, and nirmanakaya.
