TRANSLATOR'S NOTE TO THE

LONG SAL SERIE SOFTEACHING S

The Longsal Cycle or The Innermost Essence ofthe Daldnis ofthe Luminous Clarity ofthe Uni­ verse (Klong chen od gsa! mkha 'gro 'i snying thig) is the collection ofChogyal Namkhai Norbu's I

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.

PREFACE

This third volume of teachings from the Long­

sal Cycle contains two upadeshas received through dreams (mnal chos), including the histories of their discoveries, over a period of time ranging from 1956 to 2001.

The Purtfication ofthe Sir Lokas as Prelimi­ naries of the Path of Ati (A ti 1· lam sngon rigs drug gnas syong), written down in its final form in 2000, contains unique instructions on how to

(ru log) of samsara,

practice the purification of the Six Lokas, based on the principle of 'reversal'

combined with the Vajrasattva purification. T he dreams through which the upadesha was received are connected to the to the author's root guru Changchub Dorje (Byang chub rdo rje, 1826-1961) and to the masters Karma Pakshi (1204-1283), Karmapa Rangjung Dorje (Rang byung rdo rje, 1284-1339), Jigmed Lingpa ('Jigs med gling pa, 1730-1798) and Togden Ugyen Tendzin (U rgyan bstan 'dzin, 1893-1959).

The Upadesha on A/1-Penetrating Wisdom (Je shes zang thaigyi man ngag), written down in its final form in 2001, is a special and essential in­ struction of Padmasambhava based on the prin­ ciple of' direct introduction'. T he dreams through which the upadesha was received are linked to the author's root guru Changchub Dorje, to Garab Dorje and Togden Ugyen Tendzin.

6

One note on the Tibetan word zang thai which

appears in the original title of the last upadesha

and throughout its text. Its real meaning, which defies English translation, refers to the quality of something or someone that has the capacity to move directly through matter, like miraculously walking through a wall, for example. It has been rendered as 'all-penetrating'

in the English title and

'which penetrates all without material obstacles' throughout the translation.

I wish to thank Anastasia McGhee for review­ ing my English. March 2003

THE HISTORY OF I TS DISCOVERY Around the middle ofthe second qfthe two ninth months ofthe Fire-Monkey year [1956], wht1e I was staying at the Ogmin Tsuphu monaste/YJ one night I had the.following dream. I was sitting cross-legged in the meditation cave q[Karma Paksht� repeatedly reciting the Seven Line Prayer with the awareness ofthe inseparable essence of Guru Padmasambhava and Gyalwa Karma Pakshi. Wfu1e I was doing that on the rocky.face in .front qfme appeared a thigle oflight inside which thefigure qfGyalwa Karma Pakshi shone vividly clear. Then both thefigure and the thigle started growing bigger and bigget; unttljinally they reached the size qfa human being. In that moment thefig-

At the endqfthe Male-lfbod-Ttgeryear[the six­ teenth qfJanua� 1975j the Gyalwa Karmapa Rangjung Rigpai Dolje came to Rom� the capital oflta� and I met him. On that occasion I had the chance to recount agreat deal on how extremely kind the secondKarmap� Karma Paksht� and the third Karmapa, Rangjung Do!J� had been to the Dzog­ chen teaching. Maybe because qfth� in the early morning I had thefollowing dream. I was walking slowly in aplace with many scat­ tered roc� when on a rock a short distanceftom where I was I saw written in very big Uchen Ti­ betan script: K/J.RMAPA, THINK OF ME!

This wasfollowed by some other letters in small characters. I went in.front qfit and carifitlly read the small letter� which said: IN THIS PLACE IS THE MEDI'E4.TION CAVE OF THE GYALWA KARMAPA RANGJUNG DORJE

Although I couldn't see any meditation cave in that area, I thought: ((For sure somewhere around here there must be the meditation cave ofthe Gyalwa Karmapa Rangjung Dot:fe'� and I went ahead. At a certain moment I saw a meditation cave at the base ofa rocky ht1� and slowly I entered inside it and saw that in the recess ofthe cave there was a statue ofthe Gyalwa Karmapa Rangjung Dorfe, human size, pure white as !fmade ofKamarupa marble (alabaster). Apartftom that there was no altar nor any other thing. I thought: rrThis statue must certainly be very sacred since it was made at the time ofthe Gyalwa Karmapa RangjungDot:fel" and immediately I went inftont ofit andsat down. I indissolubly unffied my mind with the Primor­ dial State ofMind through Guruyoga, and wht1e I was taking the empowerments, the statue suddenly traniformed and in its place I saw my kindguru, the Vidyadhara Changchub Do!Je with a smiling .face.

I replied to all qfthem giving clear explanation� and whtle I was doing thatIwoke up. The day was almost dawning.

Just like a limpi� cloudless sk� it is beyondsym­ bols and explanation� and transcends all limita­ tions andpartiality. Just as the light is the inherent manjfestation qfthe sun, the wisdom qfse!fperfec­ tion is complete with (all) qualities. In this regar� direct the Rigpa on the ey� point your eyes towards spac� relaxyourRigpa and leave it in its own condition. Don 't_follow qfier attach­ ments andkarmic traces qfthepast. Don 't welcome ideas.for the.future. In thepresent momen� in that gap bifore any temporary thought aris� recognize the natural Dang qf the condition qfDharmata. Untainted by the impurities qfemotio� the pure Rigpa arises naked: this is the unmistakable essence qfthe state qfthe Primordial Lord.

In thatgap when the previous cloud has passed and the next one has not yet arisen, the light ofthe sun untainted by the clouds shines clear and naked .for an instant. In the same waJ" in thegap between a thought that haspassed and a thoughtyet to come a state without thoughts but which penetrates all without material obstacles is vividly presen" un­ tainted by the impurities qfthoughts. This itselfis the Dang qfthe Rigpa ofDharmata. The Dharmakaya qfthe empty and clear Rigpa, the state qfthis wisdom which penetrates all with­ out material obstacles_, exists as one's naturalpos­ about t� it is not recognized

sessionfrom the beginnin� but !fone is not taught Without being mod!fied by the thoughts qfour conceptual min� by observing directly one's state we meet the wisdom ofthe natural Dang: this is directly discovering one's state.

Once the state qfthis wisdom which penetrates all without material obstacles has been realize� without being hindered by virtuous or evil karma� we attain Enlightenment in the Rigpa which pen­ etrates all without material obstacles. The se!fpeifected wisdom qfthe Dang qfRigpa is like the shining qfrays qflight as the natural ra­ diance qfthe sun1 or like the appearing qfthefive­ colored lights qfa rainbow as the natural radiance qf the empty sky. The Dang qfemptiness is Rigpa and the Dang ifRigpa is light. The Dang qflight is the kayas and clusters: the Dang qfthe real nature which is the empty and clear Rigpa manifests as the magical net ifluminous clarity.

The Dang qfluminous clarity in the sma!! reli­ quary-box qfthe heaf0 the se!fpeifected and bright prqfound clarity with the mandala qfcluster� is the Buddha qfour real nature.
