Dzogchen Today!

Sharing the Dzogchen tradition with as many people as possible is the main mission of the Dzogchen Today! project.

Transmission

To share Dzogchen, it is necessary to transmit it in its entirety

The Dzogchen Today! project has five main points to display an authentic and fully adapted transmission.

Ultimate Transmission

The heart of the Dzogchen transmission, kept alive from generation to generation. The most important to transmit.

Formal Transmission

The transmission of “transitory” knowledge: the texts, gestures, tangible supports and mental representations that serve as the visible context for the ultimate transmission.

Transmission Framework

Traditionally, Dzogchen could be transmitted anywhere, under any conditions; this is still the case, whether in the street, in a café, or in a more formal setting, such as a dedicated place.

Context & Conditions

As the conditions for physical transmission are not always possible in the current context, the Dzogchen Today! project invites you to its online academy where you can access a large number of resources.

Teachers Training

It is an essential part of the project that will guarantee the transmission of Dzogchen for present and future generations. Moreover, the teachers must adapt their teaching to the plurality of the world since Dzogchen has no borders today.

In the Dzogchen Today! project we place great importance on the transmission and its context. Our teacher training is very demanding.

How to share Dzogchen today?

To share Dzogchen is above all to have integrated it for oneself. The programs of the Dzogchen Today! Academy guide us step by step to integrate the Great Perfection in our life and to be able to transmit it afterwards.

Dzogchen can only be shared in a natural, authentic and experienced way.

Preserving to Adapt, Adapting to Share, Sharing to Preserve. This is the heart of the Dzogchen Today! project
