Dzogchen Teachings

Dzogchen teachings are not tied to any particular Buddhist style. Both Tönpa Shenrab Miwoche, the Buddha of the Bön teachings (about 18,000 years ago), and Buddha Shakyamuni (about 2,500 years ago) gave these teachings. No wonder: Sangwa Düpa, one of the sons of Tönpa Shenrab, is said to have been and is one of the previous reincarnations of Buddha Shakyamuni.
