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 basically divided into two large sections making up its two separate volumes. This chapter discusses the second volume, which contains the main instructions on the Path and its Fruit (lam 'bras) of Buddhahood, covering chapters 11-21 of the work. According to the colophon, the impetus which set off the composition of the dByings rig mdzod was the access to a set of rDzogs chen Tantras (rgyud) Shardza had in sGrub phug Zang(s) mdzod ma in Nyag yul in 1905. He reflected on the fact that the oral instructions of rDzogs chen were given in very strict conditions, such as in a single transmission mode.
