Dzogchen is Tibetan for ‘Great Perfection.’ The term refers to a teaching that enables one to realize Buddhahood which is a quality that is inherent in the minds of humans and other sentient beings. Although the teaching originated in Tibet and has been transmitted continuously there, it is universal and is above labeling and differentiation. The teaching’s essence lies in the emphasis for the practitioner to become aware of the present moment at all times. Dzogcehn has been disseminated both by Bon and Nyingma practitioners of Buddhism in Tibet.
