The Drigung Dzogchen Community
founded by Ontül Rinpoche

Utterly profound and ultimate essence of the Lord and Spiritual Master, Embodiment of omniscient primordial awareness, These extremely important oral teachings for the Lord, Prince Lhase, having been explicitly set down upon pages of six different jewels, Were hidden in the space–like treasury of the assembly hall at Tidro. Namchag Me'bar, Master of Pure Awareness, Took them from that treasury and set down thee inner meaning of the Dharma–cycle of the pages of white conch–shell By the One Named Padmasambhava, Empowered One of Vajradhara, As a rosary of explication of the vast and profound twin phases of the concealed and secret oral instructions of the Lotus–Born One.

In July 2001, the disciples wholeheartedly proposed to Ven. Drigung Ontül Rinpoche in setting up the first  DDC - Drigung Dzogchen Community in Malaysia . The group of devoted disciples drafted out the mission points on the importance of having the Community to support each another in the present and future. Rinpoche agreed to the proposal and thereon presided over it as the Chairman.

DDC comprises of small groups of students who share common interest pursuing the Path of Enlightenment following the Maha-Ati (Dzogpa Chenpo) system. It is commonly known as Dzogchen or Great Perfection and the unbroken lineage  is traced back to Samantabadra or Kuntuzangpo. This practice system flourished mainly due to the kindness of  Guru Rinpoche, well known as the Father of Buddhism in Tibet.


Drigung Ontül Rinpoche who worked tirelessly propagating the Dzogchen teachings around the world encourages students to form practice groups which offers support to each other. DDC sources of teachings are mainly from the Yangzab Terma and Bongtül Nüden Dorje Kabum. The revelers of these Dharma Tresures are masters who uphold the lineage of Drigung Kagyu. This is the reason to name it The Drigung Dzogchen Community. May the benefits prevail and continue to spread far & wide!
