In 2005 Khen Rinpoche gave a commentary on the Kunzang Lamai Zhalung (Words of my Perfect Teacher) to Tibetan and Nepali monks who had just entered three-year retreat. We provide here the initial parts of Rinpoche's commentary translated into English by Judith Amtzis working with Ngo Drup Dorji, Lopon Sonam Tsewang and Sherpa Lama:

•Introduction, The Difficulty of Finding the Freedoms and Advantages of a Human Rebirth, and The Impermanence of Life

•The Benefit, which is Liberation, and How to Follow a Spiritual Teacher

In early 2009 Khen Rinpoche gave a commentary on a short text by Mipham, "Lion's Roar: Buddha Nature in a Nutshell" to students of the Rigpa Shedra East

In 1988, he traveled to Serta, in Kham Province Tibet, to receive teachings from H.H. Khenpo Jigme Phuntsog Rinpoche. At that time he received instructions on the three different commentaries to Guhyagarbha Tantra: Mipham Rinpoche's Osel Nyingpo (Clear Light Essence), Longchenpa's Chogchu Munsel (Clearing the Darkness of Ten Directions), and Dodrubchen Tenpai Nyima's Dzodkyi Demig (Key to the Treasure).

Again in 1992, Khenpo Jigme Phuntsog bestowed him Longchenpa's Treasury of Precious Meaning of Words, instructions on Khandro Nyingthig (Innermost Spirituality of Dakini) named Illuminating the Profound Path, Mipham Rinpoche's Vital Instructions on Dzogchen Tekchod (Cutting Through) and many others esoteric teachings.

these teachings have many reference numbers in the three and four hundreds, do you know what they refer to? for example,

 "Because  in  fact,  there  only  appears   to   be   a   progressive   liberation   from   the   obscurations   that   veil   self-­‐‑ appearances  
(rang   snang),   while   the   actual   essence   remains   in   its   primordial   state   free   from   any  obscuration.  [393]  "

thanks!

Though there are infinite liberating gateways of Dharma,
there are none not included in the dimension of the knowledge of the Great Perfection.
