This experiential Song of the Dzogchen View, written by Ju Mipham with commentary by Khenpo Gangshar, starts with instructions for beginners to gain direct experience of freedom from extremes. Mipham’s song continues with instructions on the actual practice of Dzogchen – how to see directly un-obscured self-arisen awareness. This section of the song culminates in a profound meditation instruction on realizing the unmistaken meaning of the union of awareness and emptiness. The concluding sections clearly point out both the helpful and misleading teachings found in the exposition, sutra, mind only and middle way schools as presented by masters of the Sakya, Geluk, Kagyu and Drukpa lineages. Thrangu Rinpoche’s extensive teachings elucidate the meaning and make this experiential song accessible to both beginning and advanced practitioners. Practice sessions as well as question and answer sessions further clarify the meaning. This teaching is also available on DVD. Ju Mipcham’s song, together with an outline extracted from Khenpo Gangshar’s commentary, is included with the DVD set but not with this MP3 version. Translated by David Choepel.
