Dzogchen Monastery

The Dzogchen Monastery in South India is the Magön (Mother) of the Dzogchen tradition and heads 280 branch monasteries in Tibet, Nepal and Bhutan. It is known worldwide as one of the leading institutes for traditional teaching and authentic ritual training. The Dzogchen Monastery ensures the preservation of the unbroken line of Padmasambhava and des Dzogchen Khandro Nyingthig.

The Dzogchen Monastery was founded in Tibet in 1684 by Pema Rigdzin, the 1st Dzogchen Rinpoche. He was a major dzogchen master who was considered to be the embodiment of the dzogchen teachings. Many famous students studied at the Shri Singha Shedra University of Dzogchen Monastery and the attached retreat center was home to many great Dzogchen masters, e.g. Patrul Rinpoches, the author of the great spiritual classic "The words of my consummate teacher”.

In 1950, the gradual destruction of Dzogchen Monastery in Tibet began and continued during the Cultural Revolution. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, asked His Eminence Dzogchen Rinpoche and his father Tsewang Paljor to rebuild the Dzogchen Monastery in South India. The construction work was led by Tsewang Paljor, who was an expert in traditional architecture and geomancy.

Today the Dzogchen Monastery in South India is home to 200 monks and a thriving Dharma center. In 1992 it was officially approved by S.H. dedicated to the Dalai Lama. Since then, many high lamas have given auspicious teachings here, including the heads of the 4 main schools of Tibetan Buddhism, H.H. Penor Rinpoche, S.H. Sakya Trinzin and S.H. the 17th Karmapa. Thanks to Dzogchen Rinpoche's tireless efforts to preserve the Dzogchen lineage, the temple of the Dzogchen monastery is currently being renovated. This is done using traditional ancient Indian architecture methods such as those used in the construction of the Ajanta and Ellora Caves, two World Heritage Sites in India. The temple of Dzogchen Monastery is the heart of the community, and the constant prayers and practice of the monastic Sangha bring blessings to all beings in the world.
