According to ''[[The Narration of the Precious Revelation of the Terma Treasures]]'' by [[Longchen Rabjam]] (p. 87-88), the great master [[Padmasambhava]] described the teaching of Ati Yoga in the following way before imparting them to [[Yeshe Tsogyal]]: "It is an instruction unlike any I have given in the past, the summit that transcends all of the nine gradual vehicles. By seeing its vital point, mind-made views and meditations are shattered. The paths and levels are perfected with no need for struggle. Disturbing emotions are liberated into their natural state without any need for reform or remedy. This instruction brings realization of a fruition within oneself that is not produced from causes. It instantly brings forth spontaneously present realization, liberates the material body of flesh and blood into the luminous sambhogakaya within this very lifetime, and enables you to capture the permanent abode, the precious dharmakaya realm of spontaneous presence, within three years, in the domain of Akanishtha. I possess such an instruction and I shall teach it to you!" See also [[Great Perfection]] and [[Dzogchen]].
