Sample text

For the three that are mental, however, the resolve alone suffices. This type of determination serves not only as a remedy to unwholesome deeds, but also as the core of the discipline of precepts. It is said: The resolve to give up unwholesome deeds Is taught as the perfection of discipline. Whenever we are strongly committed to refraining from unwholesome deeds, obstacles like drowsiness, dullness, and distraction may occur. However, if we notice these states and see them to be flawed, we can stop them.

Reaching the end of their travel on the path of the two stages, May they swiftly attain the state of the Lotus King. Always pass the time during session breaks with activities that are in accord with the Dharma and never part from the devotion of focusing on the guru as your path. The benefits of being diligent in guru yoga are described in The Precious Assemblage Tantra: Compared to meditating for hundreds of thousands of eons On the forms of hundreds of thousands of deities, It is better to remember the guru, even briefly, For the merit of doing so is boundless.

From the main places of his body, he projects and absorbs cloudbanks of countless maṇḍalas of infinite deities belonging to the three roots. All of appearance and existence is the nature of the guru’s vajra body, speech, and mind. Like a ball of sesame seeds, it is filled with the oceanlike maṇḍala wheels of the objects of refuge—the Three Jewels and the three roots. Then, in order to receive swift blessings, imagine all of this while you chant, with deepfelt devotion and yearning, the prayer Clearing Obstacles to the Path.
