Direct Transmission

 

The starting point for the practice of Dzogchen is to receive a ‘Direct Transmission’ from the teacher. This ‘Direct Transmission’ is the means by which the teacher introduces us directly to the true nature of our mind: our primordial state or ‘rigpa’ (in Tibetan). Ideally, it is best to receive the ‘Direct Transmission’ from the teacher in person by attending a retreat, but since this is not always possible, Rinpoche also gives ‘Direct Transmission’ via the worldwide web. On three occasions each year, corresponding to particular anniversaries in the Dzogchen calendar, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu gives the direct transmission of Guru Yoga necessary for starting to practice.

Originally Rinpoche had the idea of 'Transmission via the Web' because he wanted to help people in difficult situations who could not travel at that time to meet the Teacher. The Transmission enables them to start to practice the Dzogchen Teachings transmitted by him without being in his direct physical presence.

Newcomers who want to participate at a World Wide Transmission should be seriously interested in the Dzogchen Teachings, which are transmitted by our Teacher Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche and practiced by our worldwide Dzogchen Community. New participants at a Direct Transmission should try to receive Transmission personally from Yeshi Silvano Namkhai when it is next available.

People can send their request to be put on a mailing list to be notified about the date of the next Transmission by writing to 该邮件地址已受到反垃圾邮件插件保护。要显示它需要在浏览器中启用 JavaScript。 After having received the Transmission, they should also try to train and collaborate with the Sangha of the International Dzogchen Community of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.
