Author: Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
Highly respected in Tibet and all over the world, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche was an exceptional character: a great poet, scholar, philosopher and meditation teacher, holder of all the main lineages of Tibetan Buddhism, considered a true living Buddha by all Schools. He died in 1991, leaving behind a corpus of teachings and commentaries, including this one, the last he imparted in the West and for this reason considered by many to be his parting gift. This is theInternal training in 7 points which was introduced in Tibet by the Indian master Atisha, where all everyday situations are used to free oneself from the yoke of the "ego" and put oneself at the service of others. among other things, a technique that has been defined as "the most Christian" of Tibetan Buddhism is exposed: the practice of Tonglen, which allows you to take on the suffering of others in exchange for your happiness. In addition, clear guidelines are given for transfer of consciousness, or the conscious abandonment of the body at the precise moment of death. The clear and direct language with which the great master expresses himself reminds us how what he teaches is not so much the fruit of an academic knowledge - albeit vast - as the spontaneous manifestation of his state of enlightenment.
