The Precious Treasury of the Basic Space of Phenomena is one of the most famous of Tibetan Buddhist (Dzogchen – Great Perfection) texts among all scholars and mahasiddhas.
It is said that this text contains the essence of all Dzogchen Tantras. It clearly elucidates the View, Meditation, and Conduct of the Tantric spiritual path (Vajrayana), and the final freedom that is the fruition of the Vajrayana path. The three divisions of Great Perfection teachings (the Mind Division, the Space Division, and the Pith Instruction Division) are all synthesized within The Precious Treasury Of The Basic Space Of Phenomena. Since the time of Longchenpa in the 14th century, all masters of the Great Perfection have meditated upon it as a means of attaining liberation.
The Precious Treasury of the Basic Space of Phenomena itself is considered a sacred object. It is capable of bringing immense blessings to those who make a connection with it. If you can keep the text with you, you can attain liberation through touching. If you can hear the text recited especially while in the dying process, it brings liberation through hearing. If you can read and meditate upon the meaning of the text, you can achieve the fully enlightened state of a dharmakaya Buddha.
I planned this recording for two years and had it professionally recorded over a two month period of time in early 2019. May it bring peace of mind and freedom from suffering to all who listen to it.
