Dream yoga is followed by sleep yoga also known as the yoga of clear light. It is a more advanced practice similar to the most secret Tibetan practices. The goal is to remain aware during deep sleep when the gross conceptual mind and the operation of the senses cease.The result of these practicas is greater happiness and freedom in both our waking and dreaming states.

The book is richly illustrated with photos of Buddhist masters, meditational deities, and Dzogchen symbols.

Understanding how our actions, words, and thoughts interact enhances our ability to progress in spiritual practice and brings us closer to self-realization. In a warm, informal style Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche opens up Tibetan meditation practice to both beginners and experienced students, placing as much emphasis on practice as on knowledge. Depending on the sources of the problems in our lives, he offers practices that work with the body, speech, or the mind—a collection of Tibetan yoga exercises, visualizations, sacred sound practices, and spacious meditations on the nature of mind. Together, he says, knowledge and regular meditation practice can alter our self-image and lead to a lighter, more joyful sense of being. The stillness of the body, the silence of speech, and the spacious awareness of mind are the true three doors to enlightenment.

In Dream Yoga and the Practice of Natural Light, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu gives instructions for developing clarity within the sleep and dream states. He goes beyond the practices of lucid dreaming that have been popularized in the West by presenting methods for guiding dream states that are part of a broader system for enhancing self-awareness called Dzogchen. In this tradition, the development of lucidity in the dream state is understood in the context of generating greater awareness for the ultimate purpose of attaining liberation. This revised and expanded edition includes additional material from a profound and personal Dzogchen book, which Chögyal Namkhai Norbu wrote over many years. This material deepens the first edition's emphasis on specific exercises to develop awareness within the dream and sleep states. Also included in this book is a text written by Mipham, the nineteenth-century master of Dzogchen, which offers additional insights into this extraordinary form of meditation and awareness.
