Trul-khor in Tibetan, literally means a machine tool or also
a fantastic attribute of gods etc. Unlike above, here, The Trul-khor
must be understood as one of the most profound Yogic teachings:
firstly, designed to clear all the obstacles of meditation.
Without trul-khor practice, practitioners cannot progress in
their progressive realisations.
Here the emphasis is made as per the Dzogchen tawa /view to
prepare Dzogchenpa (Dzogchen practitioner/s) on the path including
seven weeks or forty nine days total dark retreat. To do so,
he/she had to receive the Seven Ways Clear Light practice (tsa-lung
trul-khor wö-sel dhun-kor) teachings and get familiar with
It is a vast teaching and as such we can only teach part by
part. The teaching is based on the Oral Transmission of Zhang
Zhung (Zhang Zhung Nyan Gyud ) text. Sharza Tashi Gyaltsen has
written commentary on the teaching which is combined here too.
The practice will be particularly absorbable by those who have
sufficient experience in meditative practice such as series
of Zhiney and Lhak-thong. Thus it is a great aid towards discovering
of the Nature of the Mind!
This is a continuation of Dzogchen teachings. The topic this
time is Lhak-thong, for which a loose translation would be Penetrative
insight meditation, or authentic vipasyana. At various retreats
in the UK, Europe, and America in the past (under the umbrella
of Dzogchen Ngozhi), Zhiney-calm abiding, and the Introduction
to the Sem-kyi Ney-look-Nature of the Mind, have been explained.
Lhak-thong Wod-sel teaching is vast and will be taught continuously
in two divisions:
(a) Lhak-thong Wod-sel experiencing in general terms, and
(b) Lhak-thong Wod-sel experiencing in particular.
The practice involves both mun-tsham (dark retreat) and Dzogchen
Tsa-lung (Aa-ti Yoga) practices.
