The transmission lineage of Dzogchen

I. The meaning of having a trans­mis­sion lineage.
The meaning of having a trans­mis­sion lineage of Dzog­chen is explained by the fol­lowing quote from Heart Advice of My Always Noble Spiritual Master: Instruc­tions on the Preliminary Prac­tice of the Heart Essence (snying thig sngon ’gro’i khrid yig kun bzang bla ma’i zhal lung). Sichuan, China: Sichuan Eth­nic Nationality Publications, 1989. Patrul Rin­poché. pp. 501–2:

This is also neces­sary in this vajra essence vehicle, the heart
essence of the Natural Great Per­fec­tion. It is not taught that the
profound truth should be established through the process of
analysis and logic as is done in the lower vehic­les. Nor is it taught
that com­mon accom­plish­ments should be relied upon in order to
obtain supreme con­sum­mation, as in the lower tan­tras. It is also
7not taught that you should emphasize reliance upon the illustrative
wis­dom of the third empower­ment to introduce ultimate
wis­dom, as it is in the higher tan­tras. In the Great Per­fec­tion tradition,
you rely upon prayer made with fervent devotion to the
supremely realized Lama alone, whose lineage is like a gol­den
chain untain­ted by the defilement of broken tan­tric com­mit­ments,
and con­sider him to be an actual Bud­dha. If you sim­ply
pray to him in this way, your mind will merge inseparably with
his wis­dom mind. By the power of the trans­ference of his bles­sings
to you, it is said that realization will arise within you.
