Yes, what Silent Bob says is true. But also, are you looking for pointing out specifically from a Mahamudra lineage holder? Or from a Dzogchen lineage holder too?
Because Lama Tharchin Rinpoche's main center is not far from you and he is often giving teachings on Dzogchen. Some are restricted to more senior disciples, and some are more open. And then there is this below event, happening very soon at Pema Osel Ling, Lama Tharchin's center, with one of the great Nyingma masters of our time. This teaching of Garab Dorje is considered the original primordial pith of pointing-out from the Dzogchen lineage: http://www.vajrayana.org/index.php?cID=226

We are extraordinarily grateful that Yangthang Tulku Rinpoche will visit Pema Osel Ling this April 19-20 to teach, at the request of Lama Tharchin Rinpoche, on Garab Dorje's Three Words that Strike the Vital Point.
Garab Dorje, the first human lineage-holder of the Dzogchen Great Perfection teachings -- he had received the Dzogchen transmissions directly from Vajrasattva and Vajrapani -- gave his final testament to his chief disciple Manjushrimitra after his parinirvana. Known as the Three Words that Strike the Vital Point (Tsik Sum Né Dek), it synthesizes the Great Perfection’s view, meditation and action in three pith instructions:
*One is introduced directly to one's true nature
*One attains certainty about this natural state
*One continues with confidence in liberation
To hear the Dzogchen teachings has the ability to bring liberation in this single body, in this single life. That is why they are so special. We hope you are able to join us for this teaching with Yangthang Tulku Rinpoche, who is a Dzogchen master. We are also very fortunate that Sangye Khandro will translate.
The schedule is confirmed as follows:
Friday, April 19 6:30-8:30 PM
Saturday, April 20 11:00 – 1:00 PM and 3:00 – 5:00 PM
