Newcomers who want to participate at a World Wide Transmission should be seriously interested in the Dzogchen Teachings, which are transmitted by our Teacher Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche and practised in our worldwide Dzogchen Community. New participants at a World Wide Transmission should try to receive Teachings from Chögyal Namkhai Norbu in the future. After having received the Transmission, they should also try to train and collaborate with the Sangha of the International Dzogchen Community of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu.
Originally Rinpoche had this idea of a “Transmission on Distance” because he wanted to help people in difficult situations who could not travel at that time to meet the Teacher. The Transmission should enable them to practice the Dzogchen Teachings transmitted by him without being in his direct physical presence.
In order to learn the appropriate mantras, mudras, and melodies correctly, it is important to hear an explanation from a knowledgeable student of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu well in advance of the event.
”When we are doing this practice together we are unifying in the same state, that famous state in Dzogchen teaching called the primordial state…. that means teacher and students are all in that moment in the primordial state, so in this way there is a possibility to transmit. For transmission there is no distance, if you are far or near it doesn’t matter because knowledge of transmission is beyond time and distance. So for this reason we can use this method”.
