In The Woods of Nowhere
These poems of enlightened mind, written by the American born mystic, farmer, philosopher Traktung Yeshe Dorje, express the subtle realities of Dzogchen and Tantric wisdom. The Vajrayana tradition, Buddhist Tantra, has long embraced lineages of transmission divulged in song - a tradition called Doha Songs. In these songs it is the direct enlightened state of living non-dual wisdom, rather than the path to enlightenment, that is expressed. The way in which beauty, truth, goodness infuses appearance without ever straying from the ground of Original Innocence and Bright Virtue, that is Buddha Nature, is spoken of with great wisdom.
