The Three Paths of Liberation is a straightforward guide to the understanding of the essence of all paths, Buddhist or not, leading to spiritual realization. The book explains that all paths can be described as three main methods, no matter what tradition is being considered. Those three paths, in an approach which is part of Dzogchen knowledge found in a teaching called the tharlam desum, are that of renunciation, transformation, and self-liberation. We can recognize that in Buddhist terminology the path of renunciation is Sutra; that of transformation, Tantra; and that of self-liberation, Dzogchen.

Once released from an ironclad identification with a particular school or current of dharma born from a limited point of view, we become free to take Rinpoche’s advice: “We can apply all three paths of liberation, and a practitioner of Dzogchen who understands the essence of the teaching always integrates all three… I will try to communicate and explain these paths so you can have a clear idea of them and will find no conflict between Sutra and Tantra, or among different schools and traditions.”

This book, because it contains Dzogchen practices, is meant for those who have already received transmission.
