Finding Rest in Meditation: the trilogy of rest, volume 2
Longchenpa’s classic exposition of the Buddhist path, the Trilogy of Rest, teaches us how to familiarize ourselves with our most basic nature—the clear and pristine awareness that is the nature of the mind. According to the traditional format of view, meditation, and action, Finding Rest in Meditation is the sequel to Finding Rest in the Nature of the Mind, which establishes the view of the Buddhist path generally, and specifically that of the teachings of the Great Perfection. It precedes the final volume, Finding Rest in Illusion, which focuses on post-meditation yogic conduct. The current volume outlines the main points of meditation, namely, where one should meditate, what qualities a practitioner should possess and develop, and what should be practiced.
"Omniscient Longchenpa’s Seven Treasures and Trilogy of Rest are the greatest inspirations for the entire Nyingma school and all who follow the Great Perfection path as a means to attaining the state of Samantabhadra."
—Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche
