‘All thoughts vanish into emptiness
like the imprint of a bird in the sky’
Dzogchen is ‘The Great Perfection’,
the apogee of Tibetan Tantric Buddhist meditation accomplishment.
It is the Buddha’s enlightenment in rainbow light.
It is the school of Buddhism with greatest affinity
to the sanity of twenty-first century mystical aspiration.
A sign of Dzogchen is the Garuda, a mythical bird.
One of the great masters of Dzogchen in this century,
Kyapje Dunjom Rimpoche, expressed the vision of Dzogchen something like this:
‘The first thing is Dzogchen vision which sees what really is — the nature of mind itself.
This is the natural state of being, where the mind makes no distinctions and judgments.
This state of awareness is called rigpa.
Rigpa is naked awareness of the wholistic here and now.
On the Dzogchen page the nature of Dzogchen is described by various adepts through the ages.

Looking in a mirror; is there then really two;
Or one essence, a harmony of presence & voice?
Why struggle in this dream of loneliness?
Awaken a love song where sorrow fades away.

THE FAR-REACHING PERFECTION OF SUBLIME KNOWING!
The Blessed One, was at Vultures Peak in Rajagriha, at that time, at that moment, the Blessed One spoke; “Ananda! This is the Far-Reaching Perfection of Sublime Knowing in a Single Letter. For the benefit and happiness of all sentient beings, you should retain this! It goes thus: AH
THE FAR-REACHING PERFECTION OF SUBLIME KNOWING IN A SINGLE LETTER,
THE MOTHER OF ALL THOSE GONE TO THUSNESS, IS COMPLETE.
