Ri Cho: Extracting the Quintessence of Accomplishment – Oral Instructions for the Practice of Mountain Retreat Expounded Simply and Directly in their Essential Nakedness







"For those who, through the reunion of their perfectly pure past aspirations and potential karma, have heart-felt confidence in the Dharma of the profound and secret Great Perfection and in the Guru who reveals it, and who wish to go through the practice to its ultimate end, for all these fortunate beings here is an entrance door....."

[HH Dudjom Rinpoche, from Mountain Retreat]
