Mind Section (sems sde)


The first of the Three Sections of Dzogchen, as arranged by Manjushrimitra. In Tibet three lineages are represented:

The two former lineages were continued only as termas while Vimalamitra's was passed on both as terma and as oral transmission. In the following millennium, innumerable termas have been revealed containing the precious instructions of these three great masters. The most important of these terma treasures are included in the Rinchen Terdzö, a collection of termas by Jamgön Kongtrül covering the Three Inner Tantras.
