In this seventh episode, Mila Khyentse Rinpoche and Grégoire Langouet present one of the central triads of Dzogchen teachings known as “Base, Path, and Fruition,” with a focus on fruition, which is the outcome of the Dzogchen path. In this episode, we delve deeper into the definition of this ‘fruition’ and the concept of the ‘vehicle of the result.’ Additionally, we explore what happens to a master who has traversed the path and achieved the result, and how the realization manifests in her or his experience.


One of the main teachings of Dzogchen is the triptych called “Base, Path and Fruit”. The primordial Base of our own mind, the necessary path to its realization and the realization itself. In this episode, the focus is on the result.
