Our Pristine Mind: A Practical Guide to
by Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche
About the Book
The true nature of our mind is brilliant, clear, and joyful. But we don’t experience this reality amid the swirl of stresses, thoughts, and emotions of day-to-day life. Our Pristine Mind is a practical guide to uncovering our naturally comfortable state of mind and reconnecting with the unconditional happiness that is already within us. Using straightforward, accessible language, Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche leads us through the path of Pristine Mind meditation, a practice from the profound teachings known as Dzogchen. This book presents the entire journey of meditation, from the very beginning all the way to the complete happiness of enlightenment. It is a realistic, natural process that can be practiced and experienced by anyone.
“This beautiful book feels like a life-changing conversation with a dear friend who happens to be a wise and compassionate Tibetan teacher. Always clear and encouraging, Orgyen Chowang Rinpoche helps us experience the inherently spacious and peaceful nature of the mind—like being the sky, untroubled and undamaged by whatever storm clouds pass through it. He is plain spoken, practical, and profound. A gem of a book.”
