The Long-Life Practice of Amitayus and the related instructions on The Chülen of the Three Kayas are terma teachings of Padmasambhava discovered by Nyagla Pema Düdul. This book contains Chögyal Namkhai Norbu’s oral commentary on the two texts, given during a retreat in 2014 at Merigar West, Italy. Rinpoche’s explanations alternate with relevant passages he had selected for the occasion, translated here from the original Tibetan.
The complete translations from the Tibetan of The Long-Life Practice of Amitayus from the original Tsedrub Gongdü and of The Chülen of the Three Kayas from Nyagla Pema Düdul’s terma cycle The Self-Liberation That Encompasses Space (Khakhyab Rangdrol) are provided in the appendix.
Also included are the short and long practices of Amitayus adapted by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu for his students on the basis of Nyagla Pema Düdul’s Union of Primordial Essences Long-Life Practice (Tsedrub Gongdü).
