Here is a fascinating little book which actually contains instructions on the Bon practice of Dzogchen.

 

The Stages of A-Khrid Meditation

 

It is a fascinating read, especially when you realize the purpose of the gazing and dissolving the mind, and how to stay in the natural state. It also contains some interesting instructions on why Bon followers sometimes act like crazy people... it just a method of incorporating realization into every day activities..

 

Nice recap of the progression of practice..

At first it will come out of your eyes,

Like a stream of water in slow motion.

This water is crystal clear, brighter than the surrounding air.

The water fills all.

It is silent, filled with love, joy and light.

It comes from the heart on the wings of love.

You are everything, everything is you.

All is Love.

Yes this is A-Khrid instruction. Which is to say 'A Tri'. 'Tri', meaning instructions on how to perform a certain practice or ritual, as in wang, lung and tri, the three aspects which constitute an empowerment. And 'A' meaning one's primordial nature. A-Khrid is instructions on how to recognize vidyā (rig pa).

I was fortunate enough to spend 3 weeks in retreat with Geshe Tenzin Wangyal one summer, and the entire teaching/practice was on A-Khrid Dzogchen.  They also introduced an A-Khrid Trul Khor (A Tibetan Yoga) we did each morning.  The Bon have three practices of Dzogchen:  A-Khrid, Zhang Zhung Nyen Gyu, and Dzogchen.  

I gained a great deal from Geshe Tenzin that summer, and could totally advise on getting his books on Dzogchen.  He taught at Rice University, and as he told us, he learned how to talk to Americans, and most importantly he learned ho to teach Westerners.  His instructions are clear and easy to follow.
