Sogyal Rinpoche’s Vision for Rigpa

"Within the next ten years I would like Rigpa to be firmly established
as a vehicle for the transmission of the extraordinary teachings of Dzogpachenpo (the highest teaching of Buddha), in the modern world. In order for this to happen, it is crucially important that we become genuine practitioners of the Dharma, motivated by the sincere wish to bring all beings to the state of enlightenment.
This is the vision of Rigpa, which is in the true spirit of bodhichitta,
as we seek to make a lasting contribution to the Dharma, for the benefit of all humanity."

Thank you for your generosity!
