Malcolm Smith Interview with Wisdom Pubications

Visit Wisdom Publications' lively  and brilliant Podcast with Malcom Smith,  translator of  Buddhahood in This Life.

Malcolm speaks about his early influences; the compelling role Abidharma informed his early studies; his study of the Tibetan language and  numerous topics he discusses in regard to Dzogchen and the art of translation.

Buddhahood in This Life
The Great Commentary by Vimalamitra

Available for the first time in English, Buddhahood in This Life presents the Great Commentary of Vimalamitra—one of the earliest and most influential texts in the Dzogchen tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. It explores the theory and practice of the Great Perfection tradition in detail, shows how Dzogchen meditation relates to the entirety of the Buddhist path, and outlines how we can understand buddhahood—and even achieve it in our lifetime.
