Regarding the ways meditation practice, there are three main methods: the Hinayana and Mahayana method, the method of internal and external tantras, and the Atiyoga method of self-liberation.
During the course, we will review theoretically and practically all three of these main methods, but rather dedicate ourselves to the method of practicing meditation in Atiyoga.
The ultimate essence of Atiyoga's practice is to persist in the state of contemplation. In order to get into the state of authentic contemplation, one must first distinguish the mind from the nature of the mind and this is not possible without direct introduction into the nature of mind by a Master.
In Dzogchen-Upadesha there are 21 Semdzins, closely connected to direct introduction. We do not need to practice all Semdzins, but it is good to know them, to find out which one is more effective and more suitable for each of us.
If we perfectly master one of the numerous Semdzins, we can achieve the goal of Shine and Lhagthong much more effectively than just Shine practice, becoming aware of the supreme value of this method.
The course is based on Rinpoche's explanations from Chapter VI of "The Precious Vase" book.
The course is aimed for those who want to deepen the Dzogchen teachings, as they were transmitted by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu (1938-2018). For this purpose, it is very useful to participate in the training of Santi Maha Sangha, a study program and practice based on "The Precious Vase" book study and the methods of practice included in it.
Since 1998 she has been a student of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu and since 2016 she has been authorized by the Him as an instructor of Base of Santi's Maha Sangha.
