i know it is a small question and you can give me a short answer but i would like this to be a conversation that would get especially the dzogchen people talking from experience and wisdom concerning the practice of dzogchen and when to is a good time to start practicing it.
i know its the highest teaching and personally i feel that i have a way to go before dzogchen but this too is a guess, i dont have but uncertainty as my guide.
also ive heard people say the dzogchen is a complete path in and of itself.
so if we could start a conversation from this it would be great.

As to when to start - some say Dzogchen is beyond time, so maybe it doesn't matter so much.
As to where to start, you start at the beginning (where you are now) and end at the end (full enlightenment.)
Not to worry - come on in - the water is fine!
