Dzogchen is nothing like this. Its not like New Age love and light B.S.
From a post by muni...
Tibetan teacher Tsoknyi Rinpoche describes the layers of self that cover over our "essence love," and the way that mindfulness reconnects us to our true nature.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dmEce-DxTYc
But he is not really talking about Dzogchen. What he is describing is from a common Mahāyan̄a point of view.
The Dzogchen approach to developing compassion is not to cultivate compassion through mindfulness and so on, observing how one feels, etc. The Dzogchen approach is based on discovering one's real nature. Once that is discovered, it is impossible not to have compassion for all sentient beings who are ignorant of their real nature -- that is "essencelove".
However, SSJ3 is correct: Dzogchen is not connected with so called New age love and light trips.
I understood his point in the lecture to be focused on mindfulness. Peace/love/compassion was just an expression of the flavor or "feel" of the experience of mindfulness. As he said... The peaceful feeling of a comfortable easy chair at the end of a day.
What words would you (or anyone else) use to describe the "feeling" of mindfulness from a Dzogchen perspective?
