Seven-Line Prayer to Guru Rinpoche 6

The more impure and decadent the world becomes, the stronger are the blessings of Padmasambhava. While activities of other Buddhas and Bodhisattvas will go through times of prosperity and decline, the blessings of Guru Rinpoche are like the sun and moon, becoming even brighter as the times grow darker and bringing strength, power and deep peace to the minds of all sentient beings. So, during this decadent age in which we exist, entrust yourself to Padmasambhava as your sole protector.

In this lecture on the Seven-Line Prayer, Khenpo instructs us on how to entrust ourselves to Guru Rinpoche, pointing out that it is extremely important to practice the Guru Yoga of Padmasambhava as it brings about the swift attainment of enlightenment.

When expounding the special features of termas, Khenpo shares fantastic stories of how Great tertons, such as H.H. Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche and Dechen Lingpa, revealed the termas they discovered. Khenpo also clarifies the importance of cultivating devotion and practicing pure perception in our daily lives. From this lecture, your faith and devotion toward Padmasambhava and his terma tradition will most definitely be strengthened.
