The Sole Essence of Clear Light: Troma Togal ~ Book
Troma Togal Practice
by Heruka Dudjom Lingpa
Commentary by Tulku Drimed Odzer with Guru Yoga practice arranged by Jigdral Yeshe Dorje, HH Dudjom Rinpoche
Translated by Sangye Khandro and Lama Chonam
This text is a rare and precious presentation that represents the most sacred and supreme spiritual attainment—the possibility of attaining the state of permanent exaltation, fully enlightened buddhahood in the great transference body of rainbow light. It can lead the devoted and disciplined student to the pinnacle of the Troma Nagmo cycle, the four visions of togal practice.
This fourth edition of The Sole Essence of Clear Light includes the same text as prior editions — comprising Heruka Dudjom Lingpa’s togal commentary as well as the liturgy and commentary that are necessary for students to practice Troma togal, particularly in the six-month Troma togal retreat. Light of Berotsana has redesigned the cover on this latest edition so that it can be offered at a more affordable price for students.
There are four parts to the book:
- Troma Togal Guru Yoga arranged by Jigdral Yeshe Dorje, Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche;
- Commentary entitled Stainless Luminous Expanse by Tulku Drimed Odzer, Dudjom Lingpa’s son and foremost disciple;
- The Heart Blood of One-Hundred Thousand Dakinis;
- The practice for the Clear-Light Bindu entitled The Heart Essence of the Ḍakinis.
Cloth hardcover with two satin ribbon bookmarks; 211 pages
