Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche's Foreword

Buddhism is rich with philosophical inquiry into the true nature of reality. The Buddha himself began this tradition by giving detailed presentations of a series of stages by which a person could gradually learn more and more about the actual nature of the universe, their own lives, and, most centrally, their own mind.

The learned Buddhist masters of India and the other countries to which Buddhism later spread then collected and wrote commentaries on these philosophical teachings the Buddha gave, in order to make them accessible to a wider audience.
