Khorde Rushen – Khorde Rushen is the separation of samsara (delusion) from nirvana (nondelusion). These are a series of practices designed to help the yogi realize and directly experience the difference between samsara and nirvana by transforming the mind, i.e., our way of seeing the world. Khorde Rushen is sometimes referred to as the Dzogchen preliminary practices.
