Chapter Summary

This second volume of the sDe snod mdzod is exclusively concerned with Tantric and rDzogs chen teachings and covers chapters 11-21 of the root-text . As can be seen from the root-text itself, the Tantric instructions given in the commentary are mostly centered on the Perfection Stage and more particularly on the Mother Tantras (ma rgyud) style of teachings. The yoga of gtum mo (Inner Heat) is of special importance in these practices. An interesting work in dialogue form containing the questions formulated by Tshul khrims bstan pa'i rgyal mtshan and the answers of Shardza Rinpoche to the various difficult points in his sDe snod mdzod. The text itself contains eighteen questions and it is interesting to see that sometimes Shardza Rinpoche acknowledges his being uncertain about some issues.

Keywords: Mother Tantras style; Perfection Stage; Shardza Rinpoche; Tantric instructions
