THE WORDS OF MY PERFECT TEACHER by Dzongsar JAMYANG Khyentse Rinpoche
The Words of My Perfect Teacher (Tib.
ཀན་བཟང་་མའི་ཞལ་ང་
, Kunzang Lamé Shyalung; Wyl. kun bzang bla ma'i zhal lung) was composed by the great Nyingma master, Patrul Rinpoche. The work is an explanation of the Longchen Nyingtik ngöndro, the preliminary practices from the Longchen Nyingtik cycle of teachings, discovered by Jikmé Lingpa. This famous commentary is a completely faithful written record of the oral teachings Patrul Rinpoche received directly from
 
his teacher, Jikmé Gyalwé Nyugu.
"I receive this teaching ‘Kunzang Lame Shyalung’, the transmissions
and the teachings many, many times- probably over thirty times. This is something that is taught all the time. His Holiness, Dilgo
Khyentse Rinpoche, for me, for me, he’s like a Buddha – 
 accomplished being. But I remember very well to the last days when he was alive; I remember very well that
he always carry ‘Kunzang Lame Shyalung’ , the book, ‘Words of My Perfect Teacher’,
everywhere he goes, and every morning, after his practice, he would read a few pages"...quoted by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche (Transcribed from official audio files purchased from Siddhartha's Intent)

Every word, every sentence, every phrase, we can discuss; for years we can get lot out of it. For those who are very serious to follow his path, my only mm, requirement, sort of, wish is for you to actually study (Kunzang Lame Shyalung)
Words of My Perfect Teacher 
 again and again. Because this is an endless subject; this is a, this is from now for those who are seeking enlightenment
 –
 eh, this is from now till
enlightenment. I, myself, I’m happy to choose this subject because as
-
I don’t know whether some of you remember; those who were here last year that I’m a little bit
tired with sort of weekend short teachings
 –
 something to do with introduction to Buddhism or like that. Of course, lineage, there is all the usual compassion, bodhicitta, all of this, the usual stuff
 –
 
you’ll hear it again. I am not promising that you
are going to hear something unusual things here
 –
 okay. This is also probably the most extensive, most, the biggest, the largest explanation on the Longchen Nyingtik ngondro. Now, having said this is the Longchen Nyingtik
ngondro, it’s does not mean that this is something that you cannot use for those who
are practising the pat
h of, path of, eh, of Marpa, or Virupa’s. Those who are doing Kagyu ngondro, those who are doing Sakya’s, Virupa’s –
 they can definitely use this book as a reference. For Sakyapas, this is, this is what the Sakyapas talk about; for
 
Sakyapas, mm, this is wh
at they call the ‘Triple Vision, or Path of Three Perceptions’.  And for those who are following Marpa’s lineage, then there is (Dakpo Targyen) or
Jewel Ornament of Gampopa. Those who are following the tradition of Tsongkhapa, Lama Tsongkhapa - lamrin; and this is a similar subject, so one can definitely use it as a reference. Most of the subject is practical advice, pith instructions
 –
 advices; although time to time, we will hear some fundamental, mm, sort of theoretical Buddhist teaching. So for those who are practicing ngondro, this is very essential. This evening, first I will start the text and then after that we will have a short break.  And then those who are not really interested in practice, they can go home. But those who want to practise - maybe st
ay on; I would do, I’ll read in Tibetan what we call ‘lung’, transmission, which is very necessary. I think, I am very, eh, right
-wing conservative Buddhist. I think, yes, time is changing
 –
this, I know we need to apply different methods. This is something
I also know but doesn’t mean you people don’t need ‘lung’. We cannot do without ‘lung’. We cannot practice without ‘Initiation’. All
these are necessary; these are important. Now the dharma is flourishing quite rapidly in the West. I have seen people practising Vajrayana without transmissions,
initiations; maybe initiations, but I think not many people think about ‘lung’,
transmissions. This is not good.
So for those who want to practice, or those who are practising, I will read the ‘lung’.
Of course, I c
an only read few pages this time. We’ll have to continue, if we are still alive after tomorrow, then we will continue the ‘lung’. Anyway, this is a, as I said right
at the beginning, this is a long one. We have to have patience, I have to have patience. Of all the people, I have to have the patience. And then you should have the patience
 –
 okay. And lucky, we have Chokyi Nyima here today, so those who are, I mean when I have hard time trying to find the words, can you help me? Okay. (Response and laughter)
 –
 okay.
I receive this teaching ‘Kunzang Lame Shyalung’, the transmissions and the
teachings many, many times- probably over thirty times. This is something that is
taught all the time. His Holiness, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, for me, for me, he’s like a
Buddha
 –
 accomplished being. But I remember very well to the last days when he
was alive; I remember very well that he always carry ‘Kunzang Lame Shyalung’ , the book, ‘Words of My Perfect Teacher’, everywhere he goes, and every morning, after
his practice, he would read a few pages. I receive from His Holiness, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche alone, probably more than ten times. Some, because he happened to teach a group of people and then I happened to be there. And about five times he taught me, especially just, you know, just because I requested it or he thinks that this is necessarily for me. He taught me probably more than five times.  And then His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche, I must have received this about three times, and from other lamas. And if my devotion is not limited, if my pure perception is still there, if I meet, if I encounter some masters whom I, whom my limited devotion can sort of flourish
 –
 I have no hesitation but to receive this transmission or teaching again. And I will do this after thirty years, if I am still alive. So I hope some of you will
also keep that kind of tradition, Patrul Rinpoche’s tradition. Keep this as your manual,
manual of your life. Manifest your life based on this book.
