English translation

Translated by Venerable Gelong Thubten Dadak

My heartfelt congratulations go to my faithful student Ngakpa Chögyam Ögyen Togden for writing these books which are the Wisdom-Dance of the five Khandros.

I have known Chögyam for many years and we are very close. Our harmonious relationship is like that of Milarepa and Rechungpa. Chögyam has studied and practiced diligently in the Tantric tradition of the Nyingma lineage for many years and is very kind-hearted and dauntless.

It is, therefore, my earnest wish that the clarity of these explanations will help people free themselves from their sufferings. These explanations will be of help to those with or without a knowledge of the Path who I wish may become free from delusion and attain peace and happiness. I hope also that these books will be a source of inspiration and courage to their readers, heping them to discover their beginningless enlightened nature.
