The International Dzogchen Community counts among its members all those who are interested in the practice of Dzogchen as passed on to us by Chögyal Namkhai Norbu . The Community is thus seen as a place for sharing and exchange for people who share the same path towards knowledge. The various community centres are considered places for the practice of awareness where it is possible to collaborate with others in the perspective of a common spiritual enrichment.
It has a non-bureaucratic organisation, with systems of communication and collaboration which respect the various autonomous local conditions. For Chögyal Namkhai Norbu, the various Gars (places where students gather to receive teachings and practice together) make up one great mandala, a network that covers the various geographical areas of the world and to which practitioners can refer as places of study or practice and meditation.There are ten Gars in various places around the world.
