Dzogchen, the “Great Perfection” is the ultimate teaching of all the enlightened ones. You are the Eyes of the World, also known as The Jewel Ship: A Guide to the Meaning of the Supreme Ordering Principle in the Universe, the State of Pure and Total Presence (Byaṅ chub kyi sems kun byed rgyal po’i don khrid rin chen gru bo/bodhicitta kulayarāja ratnanāva vrtti) is a Dzogchen teaching by Longchenpa, considered to be the king of Dzogchen practitioners.
This teaching succinctly expresses the heart essence of Dzogchen, directly revealing the primordially pure enlightened nature of one’s own mind.
As a holder of the complete Nyingmapa lineages of Kama, Terma, and Dzogchen teachings, Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche is fully versed in all the schools of Buddhism, and is a master of Dzogchen, the most advanced tradition of meditation practice in Tibetan Buddhism. He is the author of several learned works in Tibetan, and has co-authored over 25 Dharma books in English with his brother Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche (1938-2010). Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche travels extensively within the U.S.A. and throughout the world, giving empowerments, teachings, and personal guidance at numerous retreats.
