Chapter Summary

In 1908, at the age of 50, Shardza Rinpoche's return to his hermitage coincided with the re-building of sTeng chen dgon pa. During the Iron Pig year, in Brag mgo snyi khog, he gave teachings for two weeks on the preliminary practices, before giving the initiation of various peaceful and wrathful deities to the monks. He travellled to dPal ldan Ye shes dgon where he gave teachings and initiations of the Protectors and dBal phur, together with their rites of propitiation, offerings, activity manuals, etc. At the request of some of his disciples, he composed the three books and gave the reading transmission of them. In between his sessions of practice, he gave numerous oral instructions regarding the View of Madhyamaka, that of Tantra and the special key points of rDzogs chen which enable practitioners to differentiate Awareness from ordinary mind.
