Exceptional Teachers in a Beautiful Place
Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
We’re cultivating our intelligence as opposed to expanding or upgrading its contents. It’s like brightening a room by putting a higher-watt lightbulb in a lamp. Suddenly we can see everything in the room much more clearly.
—Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche
Acharya Lama Tenpa Gyaltsen
