also called Atiyoga or Dzogchen



Rigpa (also called Atiyoga or Dzogchen) in Tibetan Buddhism is the highest possible mode of meditation. The purpose of Rigpa is to go beyond concepts like object, time and place. When practising Rigpa meditation one will experience more and more how everything in the Universe is intertwined. Therefore Rigpa is also referred to as inter-meditation.

In Buddhism Rigpa is only taught to advanced students that attended many other classes. It might seem to be an easy meditation, because there are no underlying concepts or techniques. But at the same time that is exactly why it is the most difficult meditation of all.


Petra and Rigpa

"Since 2007 I attended many Tibetan Buddhist teachings and workshops. Some years ago my Tibetan Buddhist Teacher Tulku Lobsang Rinpoche (www.tulkulobsang.org) granted me permission to pass on Rigpa to others, a permission hardly ever given. That was a very special moment, it moved me to tears and I feel grateful and honored more than words can express that I am allowed to spread this beautiful meditation."
