View, Meditation and Action

From Rigpa Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The practical training presented on the Path, at all levels of the Dharma, can be broken down into in terms of View, Meditation, and Action (Tib. ལྟ་སྒོམ་སྤྱོད་གསུམ་, ta gom chö sum, Wyl. lta sgom spyod gsum).

In Dzogchen

To see directly the absolute state, the Ground of our being, is the View; the way of stabilizing that View and making it an unbroken experience is Meditation; and integrating the View into our entire reality, and life, is what is meant by Action. [1]
