A Short Commentary on the Three Statements of Garab Dorje by Dudjom Rinpoche

I. As for the direct introduction to one's own nature: This fresh immediate awareness of the present moment, transcending all thoughts related to the three times, is itself that primordial awareness or Knowledge (ye-shes) that is self-originated intrinsic Awareness (Rig-pa). This is the direct introduction to one's own nature. II. As for deciding definitively upon this unique state: Whatever phenomena of Samsara and Nirvana may manifest, all of them represent the play of the creative energy or potentiality of one's own immediate intrinsic Awareness (Rig-pa'i rtsal). Since there is nothing that goes beyond just this, one should continue in the state of this singular and unique Awareness. Therefore, one must definitively decide upon this unique state for oneself and know that there exists nothing other than this. III. As for directly continuing with confidence in liberation: Whatever gross or subtle thoughts may arise, by merely recognizing their nature, they arise and (self-) liberate simultaneously in the vast expanse of the Dharmakaya, where Emptiness and Awareness (are inseparable). Therefore, one should continue directly with confidence in their liberation. That is pure Dzogchen Atiyoga. A Dzogchen Master STARTS with "direct introduction" with everyone. If they don't "get it" then one starts to use all the infinite methods and means to help bring about the experience of Rigpa. When one has the experience of Rigpa, then one confirms the validity of one's path now being "remaining with Rigpa" as path. Then, one simply continues in that state. Rigpa is the view to be experienced, Rigpa is the path to be followed, and Rigpa is the fruit of the path. There is no change in Rigpa, either in the beginning, middle or end. The fruit is your first realization of Rigpa. There are no Stages of Rigpa. Thogel does not modify Rigpa.
(From: groups.msn.com / Dzogchen / garabdorje.msnw) [1] These three Statements succinctly sum up the essential points of the Dzogchen teachings. They are: 1. DIRECT INTRODUCTION to one's own primordially pure nature by a lineage Dzogchen master (ngo rang thog-tu sprad-pa); 2. DOUBTLESSLY and directly discovering this unique state (thag gcig thog-tu bcad-pa); 3. CONTINUING directly with confidence in this growing state of (self-)liberation of all (gdeng grol thog-tu bca'-ba).
