In spirit of service to Master and Community, and in collaboration with all members of the Sangha, we endeavour to bring into practice Rinpoche's vision for the organisation of the International Dzogchen Community.
There will be cost savings and savings in time and effort for Gakyils and members around the world, freeing us to practice and follow the precious teachings. Less time spent on administration can also free energy for cooperative work projects like Tsegyalgar East paper making and farm collective.
In the Community, we organize open events, then events for those who have received the Transmission and events for those who have joined the Community. To avoid confusion and make sure we’re all on the same page, please clarify what is the suggested way to announce the events of the 3rd type. For example: Closed course for Dzogchen Community members or Closed course for Dzogchen Community members and Welcome Card Holders First is shorter and provokes less questions. Second is longer, requires the knowledge of the DC structure, but is more exact.
