Dzogchen
Dzogchen is 'The Great Perfection', the apogee of Tibetan Tantric Buddhist meditation accomplishment. It is the Buddha's enlightenment in rainbow light. It is the school of Buddhism with greatest affinity to the sanity of twenty-first century mystical aspiration.

A Rosemont Journey's insight:

"In the literature and practice of Dzogchen, the Seventeen Tantras of the esoteric instruction cycle are a suite of tantras belonging to the textual division known as the "esoteric instruction cycle"... They are associated with sacred literature first transmitted in the human realm by the quasi-historical Garab Dorje and passed by way of important Dzogchen figures such as Mañjuśrīmitra, Shri Singha, Padmasambhava, Jnanasutra, and Vimalamitra....

Longchen Nyingtik - Rigpa Wiki | Dzogchen | Scoop.it

Nyingtik teachings are the innermost secret teachings of Dzogchen. The Dzogchen teachings were revealed to Prahevajra (Tib. Garab Dorje) by Vajrasattva, and passed down through an unbroken lineage to present day masters. Within the Dzogchen teachings, there are three categories of teachings suitable to students of different capacity. The Nyingtik is the innermost secret cycle of teachings of the Category of Pith Instructions; this cycle is the most direct approach for students of the highest capacity.

Innermost Essence

Innermost Essence | Dzogchen | Scoop.it

Here is the essence of the maha ati tantra,

The innermost heart of Padmakara's teachings,

The life-force of the dakinis.

This is the ultimate teaching of all the nine vehicles.

It can be transmitted only by a guru of the thought lineage

And not by words alone.

Nevertheless I have written this

For the benefit of great meditators

Who are dedicated to the highest teaching.

This teaching was taken from the treasury of dharmadhatu

And is not created out of attachment

To theories and philosophical abstractions.

A Rosemont Journey's insight:

"THIS IS THE LION'S ROAR which subdues the rampant confusions and misunderstandings of those meditators who have abandoned materialistic attachments to meditate on the Innermost Essence."

The Three Statements of Garab Dorje - Chinese Buddhist Encyclopedia

The Three Statements of Garab Dorje - Chinese Buddhist Encyclopedia | Dzogchen | Scoop.it
.....As Garab Dorje attained Nirvana, his Body dissolved into space in the midst of a great cloud of rainbow Light; the earth shuddered and miraculous sounds were heard. His Disciple Mañjushrimitra, who had studied the Nyingtik teachings with him for seventy-five years, saw him in the sky, surrounded by Light, and cried out “Alas, alas! O vast expanse! If the Light that is our teacher is extinguished, who will there be to dispel the darkness of the World?“ It is said that, at this, Garab Dorje’s right hand and forearm appeared holding a golden casket, the size of a thumbnail, which circled round Mañjushrimitra three times, and descended into the palm of his hand. Inside it he found the Hitting the Essence in Three Words, Garab Dorje’s final testament, written in ink of liquid lapis lazuli on a leaf of five precious substances. Simply seeing it, Mañjushrimitra attained the same realization as his master. In fact, all four of the first vidyadharas of the Dzogchen lineage—Garab Dorje, Mañjushrimitra, Shri Singha and Jñanasutra—bequeathed a testament in a similar way to their disciples, whereupon the minds of the disciples and Wisdom minds of the masters became inseparable. Hitting the Essence in Three Words has been revered by masters and practitioners throughout the centuries as embodying in its key points the very essence of the path of Dzogchen.

The Three Statements Which Strike The Essence(The Three Vajra Verses of Garab Dorje)Upon receiving the last testament transmission from Garab Dorje of The Three Essential Statements, Manjusrimitra classified them into the three continuous aspects of Dzogchen and the three corresponding teaching series:

1. The Base: Recognize your own true nature. Direct transmission or introduction of the state of presence of one's Original Buddha nature by the master. This is the Dzogchen View upon which the semde series is based.

2. The Path: Choose the state of presence. Direct discovery of the state of presence (Rig pa), beyond Doubt. This is the Dzogchen Meditation upon which the longde series is based.

3. The Fruit/Result: Continue in the state with confidence in Liberation (total realized integration of the Base in the everyday lifeworld). This is the Dzogchen Conduct upon which the mengagde secret Upadesha series is based.These three statements distill all of the Dzogchen Tantras and Wisdom.

The Primary Dzogchen TantrasThe Six Vajra Verses of Vairochana

The Three Essential Points (The Three Vajra Verses) of the essence, nature and energy of the Base, and of the Path and Fruition of it is contained in Vairochana's early Dzogchen Tantra, the Six Vajra Verses, or "Cuckoo of the State of Presence" (Rig-pa’i khu-byug) of the Radiant One that each individual is, primordial Being Itself, the luminous presence of intrinsic awareness (Rig pa). The cuckoo is the sacred bird of the Bonpo founder Shenrab Miwo and is considered in the aboriginal Bon tradition as the king of birds, harbinger of spring and bearer of Wisdom from the vast empty sky. The Six Vajra Verses of Vairochana and all of the hundreds of Dzogchen Tantras and texts are but commentaries on Garab Dorje's Three Varjra Verses or The Three Essential Points

A Rosemont Journey's insight:

"There is also a tradition that Dzogchen,and Padmasambhava, come from a place called Oddiyana in Shamballa. Texts from this same Tun huang site identify Oddiyana as "Shamis en Balkh" in modern day Balkh, Afghanistan where many ruins, Buddhist stupas and monasteries exist. This is the town oft associated with Padmasambhava, and Rabia and Rumi as well. Although Padmasambhava is usually thought to be Indian, it is possible that he is from the Afghanistan region also associated with his name.
