Guru Rinpoche gave many profound teachings when he was in Tibet. Today’s teaching contains the essence of all his teachings. He gave this particular advice to the Dakini Yeshe Tsogyal when he was about to leave Tibet. The sutra and the tantra and especially the viewpoint of Dzogchen is contained in this teaching. To help understand this teaching, it is important to have indestructible devotion in Guru Rinpoche and awareness of Rigpa.

Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche is a Dzogchen master and the reincarnation of Dzogchen Gyaltsab Thodo Rinpoche. He was recognized by H.H. Dalai Lama's Nyingmapa teacher Kyabje Trulshig Rinpoche. He received teachings from twenty-five masters representing all five schools of Tibetan Buddhism. Tulku Yeshi has written thirteen books, ten of which have been published, on the subject of Tibetan Buddhism and culture, including “A One Thousand Year History of Sakyapa.” He has published three books in English: his autobiography “A Modern Liberation Odyssey - An Autobiography of a Tibetan Nomad Lama”, “Handbook for Half-Buddhas” and “Tibetan Zen.” He also writes novels, poetry for mind training, provides Tibetan astrology readings, can advise people on how to enjoy their life, and can bestow empowerments. Currently he is working on Dharma activities at Sakya Monastery in Seattle.
