Dzogchen and identity • Berlin, Februrary 2009

James Low

Berlin Teaching Weekend 6-8  Feb. 2009

“Dzogchen offers a radical view of personal identity. How we think of ourselves determines the choices we make and sets up the patterns of our lives. Yet, how we think of ourselves is determined by many complex historical factors. Caught up in a web of thoughts, feelings and sensations, we encounter a world full of temptations and provocations. This is a process that goes on and on. The practice of dzogchen opens up a very different experience in which while the outer forms of life continue, they do so within an openness which is ever fresh.”
