Teaching »

The Dzogchen teachings are neither a philosophy, nor a religious doctrine, nor a cultural tradition. Understanding the message of the teachings means discovering one’s own true condition stripped of all the self-deceptions and falsifications which the mind creates.

Community »

The Dzogchen Community is made up of those who are interested in following and practicing the Dzogchen teachings. It was founded by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu in Italy in the second half of the seventies and rapidly developed in various countries around the world, taking on a completely international dimension.


Garab Dorje’s Three Principles of the Dzogchen Teaching

Garab Dorje, before he dissolved his body into the essence of elements and entered into the realization of the Body of Light, he left the summary of his teachings known as his Three Principles:

(1) Direct Introduction: the primordial state is transmited straight away by the master to the disciple. The master always remains in the primordial state, and the presence of the state is thus communicated to the disciple in whatever situation or activity they may share.

(2) Not To Remain in Doubt: through the repeated experience of the primordial state in contemplation, the disciple no longer has any doubts about what his or her true condition is.

(3) To Continue In the State: the disciple endeavors to continue at all times in the state of non-dual contemplation, the primordial state, until every thought or experienc spontaneously self-liberates in the very instant that it arises, without any effort being necessary, and nothing any longer hides the true condition of the individual (which is obscured, in samsara, by dualistic vision). One contin-ues right up to Total Realization.
