The late Tulku Ugyen wrote a guru yoga for himself in 1980 at the request of one of his long-time students. The text is very short but exceptionally profound, incorporating all the elements of Great Completion (Tib. Dzogpa Chenpo) practice. The text became very important at the time of Tulku Ugyen’s passing when it was practised very extensively by a large number of people. At that time, Tsoknyi Rinpoche gave a medium-length commentary on how to do the practice and just after that, a further commentary on the meaning of Thorough Cut.
The book includes the guru yoga in Tibetan script, in transliteration, and in translation to accomodate all needs. Both Tsoknyi Rinpoche’s commentaries are included following that. The guru yoga sums up the path of Great Completion so there are many points in the commentary that will be interesting to practitioners of Great Completion in general, quite aside from their application to the guru yoga itself. The teaching on Thorough Cut will be of interest to all practitioners of Great Completion.
