The Longchen Heart Essence teachings are open to suitably qualified students who wish to deepen their experience of the Mahayana Maha-Ati by undertaking further training. This training leads to a realisation of the unity of mind, body and environment by working directly with the adhisthana, or sustaining power, of the mandala of the Longchen lineage. These practitioners become the community of those who preserve the life of the tradition, look after the material needs of the tradition and are trained to pass those teachings on to others. It is from this group of students that the teachers of the Longchen Foundation arise.
Students must have completed the Endless Compassionate Vision programme.
