Rinpoche is adamant that Vajrayana practitioners should fully understand the crucial support that mindfulness brings to the practice of tantric meditation, especially to Dzogchen meditation.

An illuminating explanation of how the Tibetan Buddhist practices of Dzogchen and Bodhichitta interface and complement one another. Through demonstrating the interrelationship of the outer, inner, and secret teachings and a textual analysis of the words of four renowned Dzogchen yogis, it makes clear that the practice of Bodhichitta is a necessary aspect of every practice within Tibetan Buddhism. Unlike other books that present either the teachings of Bodhichitta or the teachings of Dzogchen as their own system of practice, this book presents them not even as complementary practices, but as a deconstructed inner and outer which are fundamentally intertwined.
