That is why Mila Khyentse Rinpoche and Grégoire Langouet, both specialists in this tradition, enlighten us on what Dzogchen is and is not. They also enlighten us on the main characteristics of this tradition, the prerequisites to put it into practice and the way it can be practiced.


Dzogchen is an easily accessible tradition, which can be practiced in many different ways in our daily lives and which focuses on the liberation from suffering and the implementation of the means to achieve it.
