The Precious Gem – Dzogchen Teaching

Dzogchen teaches us that our natural state of mind is the union of emptiness and clarity. Our natural state of mind is peaceful and calm, free from attachments and illusions, and naturally perfect. Dzogchen is the highest form of Bon teaching, which helps us understand and claim the natural state of our mind. The natural state of mind perceives the world as it truly is, without attachment or judgment. Through our study of Dzogchen, we learn to free our minds from our attachments, grasping and illusions. In this way, we can experience the peaceful, calm, beautiful, open and non-judgmental natural state of mind. We realize that everything is naturally perfect in itself. The Precious Gem is a powerful Dzogchen teaching that provides inspiration and points us toward the natural state of mind.

The Precious Gem was first taught by Meu Lhari Nyen Po, the fifth Tonpa (teacher) of Yeru in the 11th century.  Yeru was at that time the main seat of Bon, prior to sMenri taking that role. The Precious Gem teaching has been handed down for centuries in an unbroken tradition.

Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche will teach this important Dzogchen teaching.
