“If one knows the Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra, the Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra, and the Tantra Without Syllables, one will have command over the general meaning of the tantras, like a king who has command over his subjects.”—Treasury of the Supreme Vehicle

The eleventh-century Seventeen Tantras are the most important texts in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of the Great Perfection. The Self-Liberated Vidyā Tantra, a translation of the Rigpa Rangdrol, outlines the structure of Dzogchen tantras in general and also provides a detailed outline of the Self-Arisen Vidyā Tantra, available here as an ebook. This volume also includes a brief historical account and survey of the Seventeen Tantras, an examination of the themes of the Seventeen Tantras, translated from the commentary to the String of Pearls Tantra, and an exhaustive index that encompasses both the Self-Arisen Vidya Tantra and the Self-Liberated Vidya Tantra

This is vital reading for any student of Dzogchen.
