The Dzogchen Teachings of Bönpo Treasure-Revealer Shense Lhaje
Autobiographical accounts of meetings with visionary beings together with the spiritual advice they imparted, from the thirteenth-century Bönpo scripture-revealer Shense Lhaje.
Visionary Encounters presents four chapters from the collection known as The Golden Teaching of Trenpa Namkha, a cycle of Dzogchen teachings recovered or rediscovered by the thirteenth-century master Shense Lhaje, an important scripture-revealer in the Bön tradition. These chapters include unusual autobiographical detail, providing a window into the daily life of this “wandering beggar,” as he calls himself, as well as a record of the extraordinary messages he received from visionary beings known as knowledge-holders and dakinis. Includes an introduction that places the work in its historical and literary context.
