In Dzogchen teaching, the practice of Guruyoga is indispensable because it is the root of all practices; if we follow the teaching, the first thing to do is Guruyoga. Some people learn highly complicated methods and are satisfied with that, but they do not do Guruyoga. It is as if the root of the teaching is missing: the connection to the teacher and the transmission.
Guruyoga practice according to Dzogchen means going directly to the essence. In fact, the teaching explains that the condition of Buddha or the dharmakaya coincides with our profound nature, so there is no need to look for it outside of ourselves. To be in the state of Guruyoga is to be in our own real nature and the real nature of our teacher in the same instant.
Many practices go by the name Guruyoga, but the essential meaning is to be in the state of instant presence that you were first introduced to by your teacher. Guruyoga permits us to find ourselves in that state again.
The first part of this book contains a general explanation of Guruyoga, its meaning, and its aspects related to view, meditation, and behavior. The second part contains the main Guruyoga practices applied in the Dzogchen Community, the methods for introducing the rigpa state, and the empowerments given by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu in worldwide transmissions of Guruyoga.
