Books by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu 

The Crystal and the Way of Light

In The Crystal and the Way of Light, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu examines the spiritual path from the viewpoint of Dzogchen.

He discusses the base, path and fruit of Dzogchen practice, and describes his education and how he met his principal master who showed him the real meaning of direct introduction to Dzogchen. By interweaving his life story with the teachings, he both sets Dzogchen in its traditional context and reveals its powerful contemporary relevance.

Dzogchen The Self-Perfected State

Our natural condition is self-perfected from the very beginning. What is necessary is that we reawaken and remain in our true nature.

Through understanding and practice, we can rediscover the effortless knowledge of the self-perfected state that lies beyond our habitual anguish and confusion, and remain in this uninterrupted flow of contemplation, completely relaxed but fully present through all activities.

The Mirror

The Mirror: Advice on Presence and Awareness is a brief text that with astonishing simplicity and depth expounds the three fundamental aspects of the Dzogchen path: the view, or intuitive understanding of one's primordial state; the meditation, or the application of this knowledge; and the conduct, or the integration of meditation with all one's daily activities.

This text was written in particular to define the principle of awareness and its continuous presence, which is the only substitute for all the rules and limitations of the diverse religious traditions.

Dream Yoga

In Dream Yoga and the Practice of Natural Light, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu gives instructions for developing clarity within the sleep and dream states. He goes beyond the practices of lucid dreaming that have been popularized in the West by presenting methods for guiding dream states that are part of a broader system for enhancing self-awareness called Dzogchen.

In this tradition, the development of lucidity in the dream state is understood in the context of generating greater awareness for the ultimate purpose of attaining liberation.
