The question of the purpose or meaning of life is as old as humanity itself. What are we doing here? Why have we been born? Is there some deeper meaning in human existence, something that is very close to us but remains elusive, waiting to be discovered?
The ancient teachings of Total Perfection or Ati Yoga, practiced for centuries in the snowy land of Tibet and recently introduced to the West, help us to discover the answer to these questions. They present the core of our being as being both completely pure and spontaneously perfect. These teachings, presented here by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, also provide a way to move from the level of the ordinary confused mind to the deepest level of the primordially pure consciousness. At a relative level, they can help us overcome existential fears and live a relaxed and happy life.
