The Namchö (Space Treasure) Dzogchen was revealed to Terton (treasure revealer) Migyur Dorje from Arya Avalokiteshvara and Guru Rinpoche and has been passed down from master to student through the centuries. By accomplishing these practices one can realize the nature of mind — an important and necessary foundation for higher Dzogchen practice. The preliminary practices consist of Refuge, Bodhicitta, Offering the Mandala, Vajrasattva and Guru Yoga.
“Although the Namchö preliminary practice is very deep and profound, it is clear and easy for all to practice.”
– His Holiness Penor Rinpoche.
