THE TIBETAN BOOK OF THE GREAT LIBERATION – OR – “THE METHOD OF REALIZING NIRVANNA THROUGH KNOWING THE MIND”
Includes: The Epitome Of The Great Guru’s Biography or “Padma’s Precepts” and The Last Teachings Of Phadampa Sangay
These teachings called “The Knowing of the Mind in Its Self-Identifying, Self-Realizing, Self-Liberating Reality” were formulated by Padma-Sambhava, the spiritually endowed Teacher from Urgyan.
May they not wane until the whole Sangsara is emptied.
All Hail! This is the Knowing of the Mind, the Seeing of Reality, Self-Liberation. For the sake of future generations who shall be born during the Age of Darkness, these essential aphorisms, necessarily brief and concise, herein set forth, were written down in accordance with Tantric teachings. Although taught during the present Epoch, the text of them was hidden away amidst a cache of precious things. May this book be read by those blessed devotees of the future.[Vast, vast, vast, is Divine Wisdom]

The Guru’s First Charge To The Disciples
Blessed disciples, ponder these teachings deeply. Samaya; gya, gya, gya. E-ma-ho!
Salutation To The One Mind
All hail to the One Mind that embraces the whole Sangsara and Nirvana, that eternally is as it is, yet is unknown, and although ever clear and ever existing, is not visible, that, although radiant and unobscured, is not recognized.
The Teachings Supplement Those Of The Buddha
The teachings are for the purpose of enabling one to know this Mind. All that has been taught hitherto by the Buddhas of the Three Times, in virtue of Their having known this Mind, as recorded in “The Door of the Dharma,” consisting of the Eight-Four Thousand Shlokas, and elsewhere, remains incomprehensible.
The Conquerors have not elsewhere disclosed anything concerning the One Mind.
All though as vast as the illimitable sky, the Sacred Scriptures contain but a few words relating to knowledge of the mind. This, the true explanation of the eternal teachings of the Conquerors, constitutes the correct method of their practical application
The Guru’s Second Charge To The Disciples
Kye! Kye! Ho! Blessed disciples, harken.
The Result Of Not Knowing The One Mind
Knowledge of that which is vulgarly called the mind is widespread. Inasmuch as the One Mind is unknown, thought of erroneously, or known one-sidedly without being thoroughly known as it is, desire for the teachings will be immeasurable. They will also be sought after by ordinary individuals, who not knowing the One Mind,
do not know themselves.
