View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

The first introductory book to Dzogchen, a form of Tibetan Buddhist meditation that is becoming hugely popular among Westerners. Sometimes described as 'Tibetan Zen', Dzogchen relies on a very simple path of meditation and realization. It is a direct path to realization rather than a gradual approach.

· Tibetan Buddhism is gaining adherents the world over, many of them inspired by the Dalai Lama. Within Tibetan Buddhism – and across many spiritual paths – there is tremendous interest in Dzogchen.
· Beyond Words is an introductory guide to Dzogchen, with basic practices to coordinate the energy of the individual and to develop awareness when dreaming – 'lucid dreams'.
· Unlike some forms of Tibetan Buddhism, Dzogchen does not require an understanding of Tibetan history or culture. It focuses on how to do everyday things – washing dishes, raising a child, working, taking a walk – in a deeper, more fulfilling way.
