Rigdzin Düpa (Assembly of Awareness Holders) is an inner Lama practice from the Longchen Nyingtik tradition, which is one of the most important Nyingma Dzogchen systems. The practice comes from a terma text discovered and taught by Jigme Lingpa (1730-1798).
The powerful practice of Rigdzin Düpa helps us overcome our ingrained habitual patterns to dwell in the nature of our mind.
According to the Dzogchen tradition, visualization is generated instantaneously rather than gradually, so that the ordinary process of perception of our mind is interrupted. With the cessation of ordinary perception, which is clouded with thoughts and emotions, the original clarity, our pure awareness (rigpa), emerges.
If we manage to rest in this pure awareness, which is empty in its essence and emerges as clarity according to its nature, our enlightened qualities will fully emerge. By progressively revealing our Buddha nature beyond the conceptual mind, our inherent all-pervading compassion is strengthened, enabling us to support all beings in the greatest way possible.
