A part of the rDzogs-chen, or Ati, tradition, Primordial Experience was written by Manjushrimitra, an Indian disciple of the first teacher of Ati Yoga. Presented in this book is a learned discourse on the relation of the Ati teachings to other systems of Indian thought – Buddhist and Hindu – through an examination of the key concept of bodhicitta, or enlightened mind. Included is a preface by Namkhai Norbu that places this text in the Ati tradition, as well as a substantial introduction about the theory of translation, the history of the text aand its author, philosophical questions about the relation of Ati yoga to “Buddhist Idealism”, and the meditation practice linked with this text.
