Practitioners interested to take the Base exam should extensively study and practice according to the "Precious Vase." There are various opportunities throughout the year at local centers to take SMS Base courses with certified instructors. Please visit the Master Calendar or Local Center Events calendar for detailed information.
Practitioners must also engage in karma yoga (volunteer work for the Community) in the year prior to the examination. This is not a last minute requirement but reflects one's ongoing commitment to collaborate with ones vajra sisters and brothers. Likewise practitioners must also be a member of the Community the year prior to the examination. In order to learn about Karma Yoga opportunities please contact the Tsegyalgar East Bue gakyil or your nearest local Dzogchen Community Center. There are ways to participate in Karma Yoga from afar. The Blue Gakyil can be reached at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Authorized teachers of Santi Maha Sangha include Lynn Newdome (Base) , Michael Katz (Base), and Mariano Gill (Base) and Jim Valby (2nd level). Jim Valby is the North American authorized teacher and coordinator who can be reached at email@example.com
