Please join Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche on Saturday, Dec. 11, from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon EST to receive his beautiful and inspirational teaching on this important practice, and to join him in the practice itself.
O Great Teacher, it is so wonderful that in this realm of Buddha Shakyamuni, the Mahayana and Vajrayana teachings have come. You are the essence of all the buddhas’ bodies. Your speech, the essence of all the buddhas’ speech, is the great secret Vajrayana which guides all beings to enlightenment. And your realization mind is like the cloudless sky filled with the brilliant light of the rising sun. Padmasambhava, you are the embodiment of all the buddhas. I, Yeshe Tsogyal, will never find a buddha more perfect than you, nor do I want or need to find one.
By the Wisdom Dakini Yeshe Tsogyal
Guru Padmasambhava incarnated as a totally enlightened being. Through his form, primordial wisdom manifests in the world to benefit all sentient beings. Guru Rinpoche is a direct reincarnation of Buddha Shakyamuni. The Buddha also said that Padmasambhava would be an emanation of Buddha Amitabha and Avalokiteshvara, and referred to him as the “embodiment of all the buddhas of the three times.”
To help us realize the primordial nature, Buddha Shakyamuni and Guru Padmasambhava repeatedly taught that we must transcend clinging to our ordinary dualistic conceptions, narrow attitudes, close-mindedness, traditional rules, beliefs, and limitations. The enlightened activities of Guru Rinpoche are especially powerful and effective in destroying the solidity of our dualistic concepts and fixed opinions, and in awakening us to true freedom.
Du Sum Sangye (“Buddha of the Three Times,” in English) is a very powerful and popular Tibetan Buddhist prayer to Guru Padmasambhava revealed by the Great Terton Chogyur Lingpa and transcribed by the First Great Kongtrul Rinpoche.
Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche is encouraging all Sangha participants to please accumulate at least 108 recitations of this precious prayer, which is available for download here.
