Membership in the Dzogchen Foundation is the bedrock of material support for the teacher, teachings and community. In the Buddhist tradition, supporting the teacher, teachings and community is considered virtuous — a timeless tradition of generosity reaching back to ancient times.
Membership in the Dzogchen Foundation supports our most important programs:
- Management of our retreats, including community teaching events hosted throughout the country by our practice communities
- Preservation of teachings through extensive efforts to record, transcribe, translate and archive Dzogchen teachings, materials and events.
- Website, social and email communications, including Lama Surya’s weekly Words of Wisdom
- Special events
- Operating costs of the foundation
Members receive access to an evolving collection of audio, video, transcripts, talks, publications from the Dzogchen Foundation, and teachings from the work and life of Lama Surya Das. Membership is tax deductible.
Membership is required for advanced retreats.
