The Last Statement of Garab Dorje - The Golden Letters - Dzogchen

A fundamental text of Ati Yoga: The three statements that strike the essential points. Discover it for yourself. Relax into it just as it is at the very heart of the matter.

Garab Dorje (Fl. 55 CE) Prahevajra (Pramodavajra/Surativajra) was the semi-historical first human teacher of the Ati Yoga (Dzogchen) or Great Perfection teachings according to Tibetan Buddhist tradition.


-O-

First, the view is one's own awareness that all of the infinity of appearances occurring in both Samsara and Nirvana, however many there may be, are wholly perfected (from the very beginning) within the vast expanse of the Tathagatagarbha, which is the Dharmadhatu itself, free of all conceptual elaborations. Thus, since there exists an awareness of this real meaning, it says (in the root text): The view is Longchen Rabjampa (where this name literally means the infinite great vast expanse).


Oceans of gratitude to Samaneri Jayasara for her compassionate radiations and reverberations of speech and for the presentations of essential dharma freely for all. Such good fortune.

May the the three marks of existence and the two truths be your guides.

For the benefit of all sentient beings!
