Back cover text:
Ground, path, and fruition is a type of logic used to understand a whole subject clearly. Here, it is applied to teachings on mind and mind essence from Tsoknyi Rinpoche by Lama Tony Duff to make a complete guide to the higher practices of Essence Mahamudra and the Thorough Cut of Great Completion. The book contains several, complete teachings on these subjects all carefully arranged intoground, path, and fruition presentations. Moreover, the path instructions are extensively presented using the logic of view, meditation, and conduct. Lama Tony has additionally highlighted the special type of instructions,called upadesha or foremost instructions, that form the core teachings of these practices.

From the Introduction by the author:
“Tsoknyi Rinpoche approached me, his translator, and asked me to create a book of his teachingsthat would show the tenets (of the Dzogchen and Essence Mahamudra teachings) and asked specifically for a ground, path, and fruition presentation. I selected three setsof his teachings for the purpose. The first gave extensive ground, path, and fruition teachings from both Kagyu Mahamudra and Nyingma Dzogchen perspectives. The second gave extensive instructions on the path from both perspectives. The third gave an extensive presentation just of the Dzogchen path. The selections chosen and the arrangements made of the teachings in them make the book into a manual both of the theory and practice of the Thorough Cut practice of Dzogchen that can be used by students of Tsoknyi Rinpoche or otherswho are studying and practising the same material …”

5 of 5 So Glad This Book Exists February 10, 2019
Reviewer: Ken Goodman from Cleveland Ohio  
If you've experienced an authentic, direct "taste" of rigpa...
the self-recognizing quality of it can be miraculously enhanced by reading this profoundly helpful book.  Earnest thanks to the translator for bringing it into existence.
