Entering the Heart of the Sun and Moon

By Ngak’chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen

Ngak’chang Rinpoche and Khandro Déchen explore vajra romance as the living application and dynamism of the ‘Nyi-da Mélong’ – a Dzogchen tantra from the cycle of visionary revelations, realised by the enigmatic Nyingma treasure discoverer Khyungchen Aro Lingma (1886-1923). The Nyi-da Mélong puts to rest the myth that celibacy holds demonstrable spiritual advantages over a natural life. It opens the door to those who are inspired by the desire to integrate every aspect of human life with spiritual practice. Sexuality is portrayed as the pervasive stratum of the senses and sense-fields – and as such, it is appreciated as the life-blood of the creative arts. Although this teaching is common in its essential form to all Vajrayana traditions, it has never before been extrapolated in such detail with regard to how it is lived within romantic relationships. Here we find a vivid presentation, characteristic of the milieu of the mahasiddhas, in which we discover, not simply a lucid description of the practice of the Nyi-da Mélong – but a rich crystal commentary in creative contemporary language. The authors discuss in profound depth the spiritual vivacity of: falling in love; perceptual intimacy; vajra romance; non-dual passion; liberated-lust; and the poignant possibility of remaining in love indefinitely.
