Oral Commentary on the Longsal Terma "The Opening of the Gate to the State of Ati"
Chögyal Namkhai Norbu received this teaching in a dream from his master Changchub Dorje, but the teaching is not his. It is from Guru Padmasambhava, and explains in a very simple way that we can enter into the knowledge of Ati. One night Rinpoche dreamed that he was in the place where Changchub Dorje lived and in the dream Rinpoche said to him, “In Eastern Tibet there is a big revolution, no one can lead a normal life anymore, and now all these turmoils are breaking out in central Tibet too, so even if we want to practice we can’t, and if we want to learn the teachings and practice Dharma we don’t get much chance: what can we do in such a situation?” Changchub Dorje replied, “I gave you an essential teaching, condensed, just right for this kind of situation; it is called Ati Gojed; ati means primordial state, knowledge, go means gate, jed means to open, and so it means how to open the gate of knowledge. With this teaching you can not just receive the knowledge but you can apply it.”
