This unprecedented course will enable one to grasp precisely both the principles of theory and the essential points of the practice of the most outstanding traditions within the Buddhist teaching, so that the full import of Dzogchen will become apparent and arise in one's mind beyond doubt and uncertainty in the practice.
We will spend three days a week of 2 hours each in learning in detail the various views of the gradual and non-gradual Mahayana; the views of the various classes of Tantras, and the different ways of presenting the view of Dzogchen.
Each session will include the theory and the application of the practices set out in the “Ati Treasury of Contemplation”: the practices of the gradual and non gradual Mahayana; the tantric practices, and the main practices of Dzogchen Semde according to the master Sodogpa tradition.
