So if I go and ask a nyingma or bon master for direct introduction there is no previous requirements? i can just move forward with practices to realize dzogchen?when a person has received transmission he/she can acheive the final budhahood in one life correct?
Im taking this very serious, if there is a way for me to discover my true nature, in this lifetime, it is worth knowing and practicing immediately.
Not very likely. In that Dzogpachenpo is embedded within these two religions (Buddhist/Nyingma and Bon) most Lamas
will require at the very least familiarity with the terminology, principle and theory of the religion. You would also need
to have the experiential base to be able to make use of whatever words or symbols the lama may use. One usually
accomplishes this experiential base through what is called 'ngondro.' It is not always a requirement, or prerequisite,
but some sort of basic accumulation of practice (purification, merit and development of trust in the Lama) typically is.
One of my root lamas says of this accumulation of merit and wisdom that the only human he ever head of that realized
Dzogchen without it was Gasreb Dorje! Sure, you may have practiced a great deal in a past lifetime, but it is also true
that we all have obscurations and lack easy access to what wisdom we may have accumulated. (If that weren't the case,
our lives would look a lot different.) Well that's maybe long winded, but characterizes the probability of meeting a qualified
Dzogchen master who will simply teach 'anybody.' Rare.
