In general Dzogchen isn’t considered to be a method of the mind but of rigpa, instant presence… The way of the mind uses reasoning while the method of Dzogchen is to go directly, from the beginning, to the state of presence. Thus in Semde the word sem, mind, doesn’t refer to ordinary mind but to an abbreviation of the Tibetan expression changchubsem (in Sanskrit bodhichitta) which indicates our real condition, also called primordial state. To attain the knowledge of this condition one uses the Semde methods.
