Tempa Dukte Lama and Geshe Tsewang Ngodup Rinpoche will explain the heart essence of Todgal with the practice of the Six Lamps. The main practice of Dzogchen consists of Todgal and Trek Chod. Todgal is the development of vision practice in Dzogchen. Through Todgal practice with the Six Lamps, we first point out where intrinsic awareness abides. Second, we clarify which path intrinsic awareness follows and through which door it exits. Finally, we point out in what form intrinsic awareness appears.

The reason why this inner essential instruction is given second, after the instruction on The View of Dzogchen, is because it is the key that opens the treasure house inside the palace of the Dzogchen view.
