All over the world the Dzogchen Community celebrates the anniversaries of Garab Dorje, Guru Padmasambhava, and Adzom Drugpa, which fall on the 15th day of the first month, the 10th day of the sixth month, and the 25th day of the ninth month, respectively, of the Tibetan lunar calendar. On these days Chögyal Namkhai Norbu gives a Guruyoga transmission via webcast at a specific time and with a specific practice for each anniversary.
The starting point for the practice of Dzogchen is to receive a ‘Direct Transmission’ from the teacher. ‘Direct Transmission’ is the means by which the teacher introduces us directly to the true nature of our mind: our primordial state. Ideally, it is best to receive the ‘Direct Transmission’ from the teacher in person by attending a retreat, but since this is not always possible, Chögyal Namkhai Norbu also gives ‘Direct Transmission’ via the worldwide web on three occasions each year, corresponding to particular anniversaries in the Dzogchen calendar. This gives new practitioners the means to enter the path of Dzogchen and begin their practice.
Explanation and Practice of the Empowerment for the Worldwide Transmission is contained in the GURUYOGA book available from Shang Shung Publications in print and ebook format (English and Italian)
