The Heart Essence of Chetsun - Chetsün Nyingtik (lce btsun snying tig)


The Chetsün Nyingtig is one of the most important Dzogchen instructions, based on a transmission from Vimalamitra. Jamyang Khyentse had a vision of Chetsün Senge Wangchuk which inspired him to write the precious teaching known as Chetsün Nyingtik. Senge Wangchuk (11th-12th century) is among the lineage gurus in the Nyingtik transmission, which he received from his root guru, Dangma Lhüngyal (gnas brtan ldang ma lhun gyi rgyal mtshan), as well as directly from Vimalamitra. As a result of his high level of realization, his physical body transformed to a rainbow body at the time of death. In a later reincarnation as Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, he remembered the Dzogchen teachings which Senge Wangchuk had transmitted to the dakini Palgyi Lodrö and wrote them down as the terma Chetsün Nyingtik, the 'Heart Essence of Chetsün.' The name Chetsün (lce btsun) means "noble tongued" - someone who never lied, slandered or gossiped. RY
