Longchenpa's Finding Rest in Illusion, the third and final volume of the Trilogy of Rest, is a classic fourteenth-century Buddhist text that describes in detail the proper conduct of those who have stabilized their recognition of the nature of the mind. This work follows the first volume of Longchenpa's trilogy, Finding Rest in the Nature of the Mind, which focuses on establishing the view, and the second volume, Finding Rest in Meditation, which focuses on practicing the path of meditation. This volume is a culmination of the teachings by outlining a practitioner's yogic conduct according to the Dzogchen tradition.
