2021 International Dzogchen Community Membership

Tsegyalgar East Membership

“We are not buying land to grow potatoes. We are buying land to make rainbow bodies possible.”
– Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Tsegyalgar Summer Retreat, 1992

Membership is a joyful aspect of our Sangha’s Samaya! It is an essential participation in the transmission of Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche. And, by his vision and design, a concrete way for us to unite our strength and capacity in the fullest expression of the knowledge of the primordial state.

Membership registration and renewal is completed on https://dzogchen.net You can sign in to your account using your e-mail address or username, or register a new account. From there, click the “Membership” Tab, where you can choose Tsegyalgar East and a tier that is suitable to you.

In 2020, we had 265 members ranging from Quebec to Colorado. We look forward to welcoming new members into our community of practitioners, while continuing to rely in endless gratitude on the long term generosity and support of our foundational community members.

In present awareness of the variety of economic circumstances in which the individuals of the community find themselves, there are three payment tiers. Payment can be made in full or as monthly installments via Paypal. If your situation does not allow you to register for the suggested amount, you are, as always, welcomed, encouraged, and advised to email yellowgakyil@tsegyalgar.org for willing accommodation. We infinitely prefer you register in the way best suitable to you rather than choose not to register or renew your membership due to the manifestation of any unfavorable secondary conditions.

    • Local Ordinary: $260
    • Global Sustaining: $575
    • Global Meritorious: $1,725

With our forces combined in the interest of the primordial state of Dzogchen there is nothing we cannot accomplish for the evolutionary benefit of you, our individual members, the Dzogchen Community at large, and all beings within our dimension!
