Realization of the Garuda

When we first begin to meditate, we look for the source of our thoughts and emotions, our conceptual mind. Ultimately, the Natural Mind, our inner awareness is revealed. 

Meditation is resting in the pure nature of mind and nonduality. The practice is simple, but not always easy.

“Our happiness can only come from within;
profound happiness does not come from outside ourselves.”


Geshe Dangsong Namgyal is a Yungdrung Bön and Rimé Dzogchen teacher focusing on Natural Mind Meditation. He entered the monastery in Tibet at a young age, eventually leaving Tibet to seek more in-depth teachings. After 25 years studying and teaching at Menri and Sera Je monasteries in India and Tritsen Norbutse Monastery in Nepal, he now teaches in the United States, Mexico, Chile,Brazil and online.

As a researcher of ancient Tibetan history, culture and religion, he has presented at numerous conferences and seminars around the world, has written many books in Tibetan, and presents Natural Mind Meditation in his first English book, Pure Dzogchen: Zhang Zhung Tradition. His most recent release is his book, Holy Women of Great Perfection: Thirty Signs and Meanings of Ultimate Nature in the Ancient Tibetan Tradition.
