Nang Jang

The Nang Jang (Tib. སྣང་སབྱང་, Wyl. rigpawiki snang sbyang; Eng. purifying appearances) is a collection of the most secret instructions Dudjom Lingpa rigpawiki received through a series of visions of various enlightened beings, including Vajradhara, Vajrayogini, Ekadzati, Shri Singha rigpawiki, Longchen Rabjam rigpawiki, Saraha rigpawiki, and others.

These instructions point out the view of Dzogchen rigpawiki. This text focuses primary on Trekchö, and is of central importance in the Dudjom Tersar tradition.

The Nang Jang is "a direct transmission of Dudjom Lingpa's Dzogchen approach, so powerful that even hearing it read aloud ensures that the listener will eventually escape the suffering of samsara."[1]

According to Dudjom Rinpoche rigpawiki, "The Nang Jang was prepared as an inexhaustible treasure trove of the gift of the Buddha rigpawiki's teachings, the relics of the dharmakaya."[2]
