Our Vision

gold-flourish

Our aim is to uphold and preserve the highest teachings of Buddhism – Dzogchen.

How? By preserving the authentic lineage of Dzogchen teachings.

The purpose of any Buddhist path is to attain enlightenment. Dzogchen teachings provide the fastest and easiest path to enlightenment. Dzogchen teachings have been passed down, from one master to another, in an unbroken lineage from their origin to present day for over 2000 years. To preserve these teachings and their authenticity we must preserve the lineage.

For over 30 years Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche, a contemporary master of Tibetan Buddhism, has had a vision of how to authentically preserve Dzogchen lineage now and into the future. Our goal is to perfectly implement Orgyen Tobgyal’s full vision. Join us on this path and learn more about Buddhism, Dzogchen, lineage, the art of thangka painting and more.

The Process

Inspiration

The inspiration for project comes from Orgyen Tobgyal Rinpoche. His vision – in turn inspired by the wishes of his masters and through his own wisdom mind – is to help preserve the authenticity of Dzogchen lineage, a line of transmission through which Dzogchen teachings were passed down for thousands of years in an unbroken thread.

Painting Process

To implement Orgyen Tobgyal’s full vision we need to commission, paint and brocade frame 108 thangkas of Dzogchen lineage masters. Each thangka will depict: one main master of the lineage, one or two of their yidam deities, two or three of their main teachers, and five or six of their main students; backdrop environment in accordance with their dwelling places; and a representation of a particular Dharma protector.

Printing & Framing

We will make 108 high quality print sets of the original 108 thangka paintings (total of over 11,600 prints) to send to the monasteries around the world for the present and future generations to learn and draw inspiration from. We will also endeavor to make 108 thangkas digitally available for the wider public. Finally, we aspire to print a large format book of the entire 108 thangka collection together with Rinpoche’s teaching on each thangka.
