Synopsis: A new translation of the Tibetan master Longchenpa’s famous work that systematically presents the path of meditation according to the Tibetan Dzogchen tradition

Finding Rest in Meditation is the second volume of the Trilogy of Rest, Longchenpa’s classic exposition of the Buddhist path, the purpose of which is to introduce us to our most basic nature—the clear and pristine awareness that is the nature of the mind. According to the traditional format of view, meditation, and action, it is the sequel to Finding Rest in the Nature of the Mind, which establishes the view of the Buddhist path generally, and specifically that of the teachings of the Great Perfection. It precedes the final volume, Finding Rest in Illusion, which focuses on post-meditation yogic conduct. This profound and comprehensive presentation of the Buddhist view and path combines the scholastic expository method with the direct pith instructions designed for advanced practitioners. The Padmakara Translation Group has provided us with a clear and fluid new translation of Finding Rest in Meditation along with its autocommentary, The Chariot of Surpassing Purity.

Finding Rest in Meditation outlines the main points of meditation, namely, where one should meditate, what qualities a practitioner should possess and develop, and what should be practiced. Based on the author’s personal experience, these instructions are designed to help stabilize and intensify direct insight into the nature of the mind through meditative practice.
