Vajra Speech, by Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, renowned for his
extra-ordinary experience and realization, is a wide ranging
collection of pith instructions for the Dzogchen yogi. This Tibetan
master's advice reduces negative emotions and naturally
enables loving kindness, compassion and wisdom to flourish.
"A swan can separate water and milk when drinking. The
yogi should be like the swan in sepa rating the milk of original
wakefulness from the water of ignorance."
--Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche
"Compared to many years studying books and going through
analytical meditation, we found it more beneficial to ask questions
of Tulku Urgyen and listen to his answers."
--Orgyen Topgyal Rinpoche.
