Simply being: texts in the dzogchen tradition

Simply Being presents twelve texts collected and translated by James Low, who copied them from the travelling libraries of yogis practising in the Himalayas. These twelve traditional teachings show us how to recognize our own enlightened being as infinite awareness free of all effort and artifice. Freed from limiting false assumptions, human nature is revealed as a joyful process of open responsiveness.
James often teaches from the texts in this book.
