In this fifth episode of the "What is Dzogchen?" series, Mila Khyentse Rinpoche and Damien Brohon present one of the central triptychs of the Dzogchen teachings called "Base, Path, and Fruition", focusing on the Base, which is the basis of reality. In this episode, we discover the specific characteristics of the Base and its various modes of manifestation. Moreover, we come to understand that the Basis of reality is the fundamental nature of our mind, which is potentially both the primordial Base and the Base of all phenomena.

Host: Vincent
