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
