The Blazing Inner Fire of Bliss and Emptiness presents a commentary to the Six Yogas of Naropa, which stands as one of the most celebrated and widely practiced systems of the completion stage of highest yoga tantra and is practiced in all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism. This commentary was given by Ngulchu Dharmabhadra (1772–1851) and was compiled from a series of lecture notes made during his oral commentary to Lama Tsongkhapa’s (1357–1419) masterpiece entitled Having Three Convictions. It is unique in that it presents the Six Yogas within the context of Vajrayogini practice, making this book a perfect companion piece to The Extremely Secret Dakini of Naropa (Snow Lion, 2011) and The Melodious Drum of Dakini Land (Dechen Ling Press, 2014).
Also contained in this book is Ngulchu Dharmabhadra’s commentary on the First Panchen Lama’s (1570–1662) famous Supplication for Liberation from [Fear of] the Perilous Journey of the Intermediate State, Entitled “A Hero Liberated from Fear.” The first half of this prayer summons the immediacy of death and the need to extract its greatest potential, while the second half reveals the means of doing so within the context of the completion stage of highest yoga tantra.
The material in this book is restricted. This book may be read only by those who have received a complete initiation into any highest yoga tantra practice. In order to practice this material, it would be best if you have received a full initiation into either Guhyasamaja, Yamantaka, or Chakrasamvara.
