About Santi Maha Sangha:

The Santi Maha Sangha training embraces nine levels of study and practice of the three series of Dzogchen: Semde, Longde and Mennagde. Each level treats exhaustively the three fondamental aspects of view, meditation and behavior in relation to the state to be achieved. The Base, which constitutes the foundation of knowledge and experience of the practice of Dzogchen, devotes a large amount of space to the Sutra and Tantra traditions and at the same time it also contains specific instructions that enable practitioners to realize the authentic state of Dzogchen.
Chögyal Namkhai Norbu explains: “In the root text of Santi Maha Sangha there are four lines which indicate the base needed in order to prepare for the ensuing levels. A person who has absorbed precisely the contents of this book both as to understanding the view and successfully completing the practice, can proceed to the first level. However, in order to follow the Dzogchen teaching, knowledge of this ‘base’ is indispensable also for those who do not intend to take part in the Santi Maha Sangha training.”
“Just as a person who wishes to build a tall majestic palace must first of all lay stable foundations, in order to enter the swift and deep teaching of Atiyoga, it is indispensable first of all to build a perfect base that will enable the meaning of the teachings to arise with certainty within ourselves. It is to this point of extreme importance that the following four lines of the root text Santi Maha Sangha refer:
The base of the teaching consists in studying, meditating and experiencing perfectly
The Buddha’s perfect teaching contained in the sutras and tantras,
And the perfectly connected method and their essence, that is the teaching of the Mind of Samantabhadra,
By means of the tantras, lungs and upadeshas of Total Perfection and of Yantra Yoga.
(Santi Maha Sangha)
 

Contents of this retreat of explanation and teaching

The first purpose of Santi Maha Sangha is to secure the continuity of the Dzogchen Teaching in its complete purity for the future, and, actually, this depends on concrete and stable knowledge of the primordial state realized by Dzogchen practitioners.
In this context, it is of prime importance to have a precise comprehension of the view, meditation and behavior in the various vehicles of Tibetan Buddhism, integrating, at the same time, their main aspects with the Dzogchen knowledge.
Such a comprehension must be bond, above all, to meditation and concretely applied in daily life, particularly in the Sangha, to initiate a real integration process.
Keeping all these aspects in mind, this retreat will include a general introduction to study and practice of “Santi Maha Sangha”. There will be given more information about the “Precious Vase” text, and the essential aspects on view, meditation and behavior according to Sutras, Tantras and Dzogchen.
 
The participants are required to be members of Dzogchen Community and have transmission from Chogyal Namkhai Norbu.
