HERMETIC  - ESOTERIC - MYSTICAL PHILOSOPHIES


DZOGCHEN

THE SIX VAJRA VERSES

The nature of phenomena is nondual,

but each one, in its own state, is beyond the limits of the mind.

There is no concept that can define the condition of "what is"

but vision nevertheless manifests:

all is good.

Everything has already been accomplished, and so, having overcome the sickness of effort,

one finds oneself in the self-perfected state:

this is contemplation.

In Tibetan:

"sNa tshogs rang bzhin mignyis kyang Cha shas nyid du spros dang bral ]i bzhin ba zhes mi rtog kyang rNam par snang mdzad kun tu bzang Zin pas rtsol ba'i nad spangs te IHun gyis gnas pas bzhag pa yin  "


(Personally I am not a Buddhist but have a great empathy with their philosophy. This website is the fruit of my own experiences and reflections on the meaning of life and my humble conclusion is that it remains a MYSTERY until one unfolds higher levels of consciousness.  Each one of these levels opens up a new way of experiencing the "PRESENT MOMENT". Each new level of awakening makes us realize that there is no mystery outside of our own Mystery - The Mystery of Being... Hence, Dzogchen may be a Tibetan word that represents a sacred way of living life and yet we find the same philosophy awaken in individuals that have never heard of the word Dzogchen. Hence, as I feel a great attraction and resonance with their way of  "Being",  in my  humble opinion, Dzogchen is an "Inner Path of Initiation" a path linking the adept to the Primordial Wisdom )

Some interesting books on Dzogchen, that I personally recommend..
1 - Dzogchen the Self-Perfected State by ChoGyal Namkhai Norbu
2 - Dream Yoga and the Practice of Natural Light by Namkhai Norbu 

3 - Dzogchen (hard cover) a new release. with the Dalai Lama, Geshe Thupten Jimpa, Patrick Gaffney editor
4 - MIPHAM'S Beacon of Certainty - The view of Dzogchen - The Great Perfection
5 - The Golden Letters - foreword by Namkhai Norbu Rimpoche
6 - Namkhai Norbu The Cycle of Day and Night.

7 - Chogyal Namkhai Norbu The Crystal and the way of Light.
