Outer preliminaries

In the Nyingma system, repeated meditation on (1) precious human rebirth, (2) death and impermanence, (3) the faults of samsara, (4) behavioral cause and effect (karma), (5) the benefits of liberation, and (6) a healthy relation with a spiritual teacher. These are prerequisite to practicing the six inner preliminaries before undertaking, on their completion, dzogchen practice.
