TRANSLATOR'S NOTE TO THE LONGSAL SERIES OF TEACHINGS

The Longsal Cycle or The Innermost Essence of the Dakinis of the Luminous Clarity of the Uni­ verse (Klong chen 'od gsa! mkha ' 'gro 'i snying thig) is the collection of Chogyal Namkhai Norbu's rediscovered teachings. In this series of publications, explanations and clarifications have been reduced to a minimum to emphasize the principle that oral instructions must be received directly from the transmission holder in order to fully understand the text. Moreover, although the Tibetan text of the upadeshas is writ­ ten in verse without any pause in its flow, the trans­ lation is presented in prose and has been divided into small sections.

PREFACE

This publication of teachings from theLongsal Cycle contains three upadeshas received through dreams (mnal chos), including the histories of their discoveries, over a period of time ranging from 1957 to 1989. The Opening of the Gate to the State of Ati (A ti 'i dgongs pa sgo 'byed), written down in 1977, is a special teaching of Padmasambhava, the Ma­ haguru of Oddiyana (VIII century), that explains the conditions of the Teaching in this degenerated age and presents a practice of Purification of the Six Lokas based on the principle of 'reversal' (ru log) of samsara. The dreams through which the upadesha was discovered are connected to Pad­ masambhava himself and to the author's root-guru Rigdzin Changchub Dorje (1826-1961). The Upadesha of Introduction to the State of Ati (A ti 'i dgongs pa ngo sprod kyi man ngag), written down in 1983, is an extraordinary teach­ ing of the great lotsava Vairochana (VIII century) introducing the authentic principle of Atiyoga or Dzogpa Chenpo, in particular presenting essen­ tial instructions on the Four Contemplations of Semde and on the fundamental aspects of primor­ dial purity (ka dag) and self-perfection (!hun grub). The dreams through which the upadesha was dis­ covered are connected to the master Vairochana himself, to the author's root guru Rigdzin Chang-

7

chub Doij e ( 1826-1961) and to his uncle Khyentse Rinpoche Chokyi Wangchug (1910-1963), who was also one of his main teachers. The Upadesha for the Self-Liberation of the Six Lokas (rGyud drug rang grol gyi man ngag), re­ ceived in 1989 while leading a retreat at Pendine, South Wales, contains instructions of the Vidya­ dhara Nagadhara on how to practice the Purifica­ tion of the Six Lekas in a very special way, by adopting also particular physical positions. I am grateful to Anastasia McGhee, Julia Law­ less, Laurie Marder and Jim Valby for reviewing my English. Adriano Clemente May 2001

Wondering whether they were reaLflowerd or made ofgoUJ and difvet; I dmelled them and dince they had an orange dcent I came to the concltMion that modt probably they were reaL flowerd. I thought of Mking her what the tneddage Wad, but during the dhort while that I had been dutracted by the flowerd the young woman had vanidhed without a trace. I wondered where the young woman hadgone and I Looked in all directiond, when I clearly daw her climbing upwardd from the top of the white rock on the other dWe.
