1996 The Practice of Spontaneous Presence
In 1996 Khenpo Tsültrim Gyamtso Rinpoche gave teachings on tögal at Kagyu Thubten Chöling in Wappingers Falls, New York. He based his commentary on sections of the Stages of the Path of the Essence of Wisdom (Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo; also translated as The Gradual Path of the Heart of Wisdom) by Guru Rinpoche and its commentary, Pervasive Light of Wisdom (also translated as Fully Spreading the Light of Wisdom), by Jamgön Kongtrül. The talks cover the same root verses from the Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo as the 1996 Karmê Chöling transcripts entitled The Practice of Thögal. However, the talks, root verses, and commentary were translated by Lama Yeshe Gyamtso, and this gives a slightly different perspective to the teachings. In addition, Khenpo Rinpoche gave teachings on The Naked Seeing of Awareness by Padmakara, a terma text of the Karling Shitro cycle, and on two topics from Jamgön Kongtrül’s Treasury of Knowledge (Sheja Dzö): the eight modes of arising and dissolving and the youthful vase body.
