Overview

The Practice of Dzogchen is an anthology of writings on Dzogpa Chenpo (Dzogchen) by Longchen Rabjam (1308-1363) the most celebrated writer and adept of the Nyingmapa School of Tibetan Buddhism. Dzogpa Chenpo is the innermost esoteric philosophy and meditation training, which until recent decades was only whispered into the ears of heart-disciples by the learned masters.

Dzogpa Chenpo employs a meditative technique which effortlessly uncovers the emotional and intellectual layers of the mind and instantly awakens its essential nature, which is Buddha Mind or Buddhahood itself.
