Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Dzogchen Monastery (Tib. rdzogs chen dgon pa) is one of the six great monasteries of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. It is located in Eastern Tibet in the Chinese province of Sichuan. It was founded by Dzogchen Pema Rigdzin (1625-1697) in 1675, 1684 or 1685. It became especially renowned for its Shri Singha Shedra established by Gyals Shenpen Thay during the time of the Fourth Dzogchen Rinpoche Mingyur Namkh Dorje, shortly after the monastery was almost totally destroyed by an earthquake in 1842. Among the great masters to have lived and taught at Dzogchen are Khenpo Pema Vajra, Patrul Rinpoche, Mipham Rinpoche and Khenpo Shenga. It eventually grew into the largest Nyingma monastery of all time.
