I & II, Vajra Speech, and Repeating the Words of the Buddha.

Praise For Rainbow Painting

"Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche has lived at length in mountain hermitages, spent many years in retreat, and done a considerable amount of meditation training. For this reason, he gives the very quintessence of the sacred teachings spoken by our compassionate Buddha Shakyamuni. He speaks from experience, expressing what he himself has undergone, instructing us in the way we should practice in a complete and unmistaken manner. These teachings, saturated with direct, pithy instruction, are unique."- Chokyi Nyima Rinpoche
