The aim of Santi Maha Sangha, which in the ancient language of Oddiyana means "Dzogchen Commmunity", is to guarantee the continuation of the Dzogchen teaching as it was originally transmitted by Garab Dorje, and as the Master has been transmitting it for more than thirty years within the Dzogchen Community.
