Ati Yoga, also known as Dzogchen, is a meditation technique to directly reveal the ultimate nature of our mind. It is most commonly translated as ‘Great Perfection’ or 'Great Completeness' since it is a practice which completely ends samsara. In the Yuthok Nyingthig cycle of spiritual teachings the chapter on Ati Yoga is called ‘The Self-Liberation of Samsara-Nirvana’. It is the secret path for realizing the final rainbow body, the expression of the complete transformation and control over the elements of matter, energy, and mind.
2016, the year of the Fire Monkey, is a most powerful spiritual year — according to Padmasambhava’s prophecy, it is the year of his emanation on this planet, a time when his energies are particularly strong and prevalent. In honor of this auspicious year, Dr. Nida is offering these rare and profound teachings for the first time in the United States. In preparation, please read Shabkar’s The Flight of the Garuda, translated by Keith Dowman. (This text is also available electronically to members of Portland Public Library.)
