The very meaning of the Tibetan term Dzogchen, "Great Perfection," refers to the true primordial state of every individual and not to any transcendent reality.

Any idea on how much of a time commitment the program is?

From the website, I read:
Weekly lectures can comprise 6 hours of core studies and 2 hours of language study. There are students who attend programs offered by the school who simultaneously carry fulltime university study loads and/or part or fulltime workloads.


OK, so it's 8 hours of lecture a week. But how much additional work outside of lecture are there? For example, I'm a software engineer and am familiar with Computer Science course workloads. Taking 3-5 CS classes while working full-time is totally inconceivable. Even though that might be 8 hours of lecture a week, it could amount to 40 hours of work a week on programming assignments and projects. I know it does say that people have done the program working full-time, but were they potentially damaging their own health sleeping 3 hours a night or so in order to do that?
