Dudjom Rinpoche

A Torch Lighting the Way to Freedom, by Dudjom Rinpoche, provides complete instructions for the preliminary practices of the Dudjom Tersar lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.

The Forward to the Padmakara translation of this text states:

Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche himself explained many times that realization of the teachings of the Great Perfection depends solely on the practice of the preliminaries. This text contains his own detailed exposition of these essential preliminary practices. The terma tradition from which it comes (discovered by himself and his predecessor, Dudjom Lingpa) covers in one complete cycle all the stages of the path, starting with these preliminaries and continuing right up to the most sublime and profound practices of the Great Perfection.
