Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, born in Tibet in 1938, is one of the primary living masters of Dzogchen. After teaching for more than twenty years at the Istituto Universitario Orientale in Naples, Italy, he is at present dedicating himself to the transmission and preservation of Dzogchen teachings and Tibetan culture at large. Norbu Rinpoche is the founder of the Dzogchen Community, whose centers of practice and study are found all over the world. Rinpoche has published numerous books and scholarly articles, which are today considered classics.
Dzogchen is an ancient spiritual teaching developed in Tibet within the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. It does not belong to a school or religious system. Rather, it is the knowledge that Tibetan masters have transmitted without being limited by sectarianism. The word ‘Dzogchen’, meaning ‘total perfection’, refers to the inherent nature of all beings, their primordial state, which is free from all conditioning. The master’s transmission of this state of knowledge lies at the heart of the Dzogchen teachings.
The Dzogchen tradition has been passed from master to student in an unbroken lineage over the centuries, up to the present day. Due to its direct and unelaborated approach, it transcends cultural boundaries making it accessible to all people, regardless of their spiritual background.
