The Quintessence of the Dzogchen View: An Exploration of Mipham's Beacon of Certainty

“A must-read for philosophers and Vajrayana practitioners. In Journey to Certainty the reader is presented with the unique perspective that belongs to a true scholar-yogi: the view in which the most essential insights within the Buddha’s teachings—be they of the Middle Way, Prajnaparamita or Dzogchen—are not only mutually supportive and without any conflict, they describe the same nature of reality. Anyen Rinpoche bases his flawless explanations on Mipham’s Beacon of Certainty, a classic within the literature of investigative philosophy, and ornaments with words from Longchenpa and many other illustrious masters.”—Erik Pema Kunsang, author of Wellsprings of the Great Perfection and compiler of Blazing Splendor

“This book beautifully demonstrates the profound unity of study and practice at heart of Tibetan Dzogchen tradition. Anyen Rinpoche takes us into the mind of Mipham Rinpoche, one of the greatest teachers of nineteenth century Tibet, to discover in our own experience Mipham’s deep integration of philosophy and contemplative awakening. Remarkably accessible, this book is essential reading for anyone attempting to understand or practice Dzogchen today.”—John Makransky, author of Awakening Through Love

“In the rich Tibetan tradition of oral commentary, Anyen Rinpoche draws from personal experience and deep understanding to breathe fresh life into Mipham Rinpoche’s classic.”—Douglas Duckworth, author of Mipam on Buddha-Nature

“This is a wonderful manual for dedicated practitioners to study and contemplate.”—Venerable Gyatrul Rinpoche
