Dorje Sempa Namkha Che Recordings Webcast

Dear members of the Dzogchen Community,

We are happy to announce that we are moving on with webcasts of the recordings of the teachings of our precious Master Chögyal Namkhai Norbu!

The next teaching that we are going to stream on the Webcast webpage will be the Dorje Sempa Namkha Che Teaching, “The Total Space of Vajrasattva” that Rinpoche gave at Kunsangar North on June 20-28, 2014.

As you can see, each day of the retreat is on a separate page. The link to each day you can see below the video player.

Vajrasattva from the Merigar Gönpa by Drugu Choegyal Rinpoche

“When we go to the essence of the Dzogchen teaching the most important text is the Dorje Sempa Namkha Che. It is not a tantra, it is a lung. In the Dzogchen teaching, a text that contains all complete explanations of the base, path, and fruit is called a root tantra. In Vajrayana teaching, a root tantra has ten qualifications. A text that is explaining only some of them is not a root tantra. In Dzogchen teaching it is different but base, path, and fruit must be complete; then it becomes a root tantra. A lung contains the most important points of a tantra. If a tantra, for instance, has ten chapters, maybe some of them are not the very essence of the teaching and only two or three chapters represent the essence of everything. When a teacher like Guru Garab Dorje, and also some of the mahasiddhas in the different dimensions, found these tantras they took the essence of them and compiled a lung. Dorje Sempa Namkha Che is a lung, the essence of the Dzogchen teaching”.

dorje sempa recordings webcast“Now I have all these books, particularly the Dorje Sempa Namkha Che root text, a commentary of Shri Simha and commentary of Vairochana. I typed them all in my computer.

Later, in the Dorje Sempa Namkache, I established the words in a perfect way and I did a weekly calendar for Dzogchen practitioners. So now there is the possibility to study it, sometimes only one verse, or sometimes two verses for each of the 52 weeks in a year. Our translator Adriano translated the Dorje Sempa Namkha Che and now everything is ready. I want to give you the transmission of this text explaining it just a little so that you can read it”.
