The special feature of Dzogchen is as follows: "Primordial pure essence is Trekcho, Cutting Through." This view is actually present in all the nine vehicles, but the special quality of Dzogchen is what is called "The spontaneously present nature is Togal, Direct Crossing." The unity of these two, Cutting Through and Direct Crossing, Trekcho and Togal, is the special or unique teaching of Dzogchen. That is how Dzogchen basically is. That's it.
Sure Thogal is that kind of special experience which is not exisitng in other Paths.
- Then the attainment would be different?
But there is no Trekchod / emptiness aspect and / + Thogal / clearity aspect, in Nature they are inseparable connected but didivded for some reasons.
It is also reflected in the partial experience of Nature by the practitioner......
I read that there is in that way real Dzogchen and partial Dzogchen.........
here i agree. This is the best method for direct crossing, while Buddhas have to sacrifice direct crossing for the benefit of existence
