Living Dzogchen Masters?

Postby nowawakening » Tue Oct 25, 2011 2:50 am

Hello,

Does anyone know who the genuine, accessible, Dzogchen Masters are of today?
The ones who don't appear to have any controversy surrounding them.
The ones who will take on Western students.
The ones who are part of a legitimate lineage.
The ones who have reached completion. (i realise this one is speculative)

Thanks for your help.

Regards

Great question.

Has anyone here heard of Lama Thupten Dorje Gyaltsen?

He is from the lineage of Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche.

I might start a thread on the Urgyen Samten Ling too....

I would seek out Dodrubchen possibly Garchen. Living masters who have attained the exhaustion of phenomena; I don't know if even these fits this, but they may be the only ones. Third vision masters are more common. You must spend a lot of time praying to meet such masters. Of course they come.

Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche, Yangthang Tulku Rinpoche, Katok Getse Rinpoche, Khenpo Namdrol Rinpoche, Khenchen Tsewang Gyatso Rinpoche, and Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche are some masters I can personally recommend. They are realized Dzogchen masters who honestly and compassionately share what they know with people from any walk of life that are interested in the teachings.

I don't think the names mentioned have completed the fourth vision, maybe the third.

You have to discuss that with them, I don't want to speculate. They do qualify in all the other questions.

Could you explain how you came to that conclusion? How in the world would you have any idea?
