Song of the Dzogchen View by Mipham (YouTube video)

Song of the Dzogchen View

The great scholar and practitioner Ju Mipham (1846-1912) stayed in the monastery of the previous Thrangu Rinpoche for a few years. He is known for having composed many texts on a vast number of Buddhist subjects and was a leading figure of the Rime (non-sectarian) movement. He composed this teaching on the Dzogchen view which is the main practice of the Nyingma lineage in which he describes the Middle-way school in relation to Dzogchen meditation

For his commentary on Miphams text Thrangu Rinpoche used an outline by Khenpo Gangshar––a teacher of Chögyam Trungpa and Thrangu Rinpoche. This teaching covers the direct examination of the mind with an extremely easy to understand explanation by explaining what is the pure, non-conceptual nature of mind and how to “look” at this mind without elaboration and fabrication and how this meditative practice fit in with the other Buddhist paths.

These teachings were given in Crestone, Colorado in 2009 with David Karma Choephel translating.

These teachings are also available in book form from Shambhala Publications in The Harmony of the View which includes the root text of this teachings along with two other teachings by Thrangu Rinpoche.
