Translated by Adriano Clemente

This book contains five invocations, the first four particularly tied to the principle of Dzogchen and the fifth to Vajrayana. The “Invocation of Samantabhadra” belongs to the cycle of the Northern Treasures (Byang gter) discovered by the tertön Rigdzin Godem Chen. The “Invocation to the Base, the Path, and the Fruit” belongs to the Longchen Nyingthig cycle of Jigmed Lingpa. The “Invocation and Introduction to the Bardo” is found in the collection of miscellaneous writings of Longchenpa. The “Natural Vajra Energy of Instant Presence and Emptiness: An Invocation to the Inseparable Meaning of the Base, Path, and Fruit of Manjushri Dzogpa Chenpo” is a famous invocation by Ju Mipham Gyatso. Finally, the “Invocation of the Lamp” belongs to the termacycle The Secret Treasure of the Vajra of Luminous Clarity discovered by Adzom Drugpa.
