Chapter Summary

The first and second volumes of Shardza Rinpoche's Collected Works (bKa' 'bum) are dedicated to what appears as the author's opus magnum, namely the Precious Treasury of Space and Awareness (dByings rig rin po che'i mdzod). This Treasury is considered as the sum of all rDzogs chen teachings written by someone who has fully reached the ultimate result of this Path, with his realization of the Rainbow Body. The Treasury is divided into two large sections making up its two separate volumes: the first one deals with the Base of the natural state, while the second one discusses the Path and the Fruit of Buddhahood. The first volume concerned with the exposition of the instructions on the Base covers chapters 1-10 of the work. These mostly deal with the explanation of the Natural State and the manner in which the Essence of Those Thus Gone encompasses the nature of beings.
