Restriction requirements

Students must have received a certificate of completion for the Wisdom Academy course Introduction to Dzogchen to study the Restricted Dzogchen Talk Series.


About this talk series

In these special Dzogchen teachings, Lama Alan Wallace guides us through the visionary instructions of Düdjom Lingpa, one of Tibet’s most renowned masters of Dzogchen. Lama Alan offers teachings on Düdjom Lingpa’s profound The Enlightened View of Samantabhadra, which guides us through the complete path to buddhahood according to the Dzogchen or Great Perfection tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.
