Tempa Dukte Lama and Geshe Tsewang Ngodup Rinpoche will point out the ultimate essence of the natural state through the Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyud practice of the Twenty-one Nails. The reason why the innermost instruction on the realization of the ultimate natural state is taught fourth (after Part One, Part Two, and Part Three) is because it means that one not only sees the treasure directly but takes it into one’s hands.

Through the practice of the Twenty-One Nails the fourfold vision of Todgal is brought to the state of exhaustion and one arrives at the ultimate state of Kuntu Zangpo.
