Dzogchen [Tib.], or Dzogpachenpo - the ‘Great Perfection’, or ‘Great Completeness’. The practice of Dzogchen is the most ancient and direct stream of wisdom within the Buddhist tradition of Tibet. It is the heart-essence of all spiritual paths and the summit of an individual’s spiritual evolution. As a way in which to realize the innermost nature of mind—that which we really are—Dzogchen is the clearest, most effective, and most relevant to the modern world. Simple yet profound, it is a path that can be integrated with ordinary life and practised anywhere. Also see The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying, pages 155-56, and The Nine Yanas, ‘Dzogchen Atiyoga ‘, pages 16-25.
