Dzogchen, meaning "great perfection" in Tibetan, is an advanced practice associated particularly with Bon, the native religion of Tibet, and the Nyingma School of Vajrayana (Tibetan) Buddhism. In both traditions, Dzogchen is the highest of nine methods for reaching enlightenment.

Traditionally, Dzogchen was a secret teaching but in recent years it has been taught openly.

Dzogchen is also called Dzogpa Chenpo, Ati Yoga, and Maha Ati.
