Transcript from oral teachings by Chogyal Namkhai Norbu
…these practices are secondary; this means that you use them only when you need to. If you have a lovely umbrella, you do not use it always, you use it when it rains or to protect you from the sun. This is called working with circumstances.
This book contains the practices that Chögyal Namkhai Norbu transmits at the end of each retreat together with brief explanations of their content and function.
The practices are presented in the sequence generally followed by the Master. All of the publications referred to in this book for studying the individual practices in greater depth are published by Shang Shung Edizioni.
The publication Mantra and Invocations for the Practices of the Dzogchen Community, which includes both a booklet and MP3 audio, provides the Tibetan and Sanskrit words in written form along with the correct pronunciation as spoken by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.
