Dzogchen Lineage of Great Perfection

Painting of Pema Kalsang Rinpoche

To maintain the purity of the Buddhist tradition the teachings are passed down by realised masters to worthy students. This maintains the blessing and power of realisation of all the enlightened masters that have gone before. Kyabje Dzogchen Pema Kalsang Rinpoche holds the closest lineage of the Dzogchen teachings in the world. There are just five masters between him and All-knowing Jigme Lingpa.
