Longchen Nyingtik Guru Yoga

Guru Yoga - coverGuru Yoga
- According to the Preliminary Practice of Longchen Nyingtik
— by Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche

Why is the practice guru yoga (union with the nature of the guru) so important? 
Because with the help of the outer teacher, the inner teacher (the true nature of our own mind) is discovered.

Padmasambhava with Longchenpa and Jigme LingpaThe hallmark of the guru yoga practice, in fact the very practice itself, is a lucid, pure and intelligent devotion. Through the power of devotion and the blessing of the master, a moment will come when a transformation takes place, in which the student recognize the wisdom mind of the guru to be no different from his or her own mind. And boundless realization is born.

This particular guru yoga is called "The Wish-fulfilling Jewel" and it is the outer practice of the guru from the Longchen Nyingthig  revelation of Rigdzin Jigme Lingpa.

It was during a summer retreat in France in 1984 that Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche gave teachings on this text.

This is a new commentary and not a re-edit of teachings in the book The Wish-fulfilling Jewel.
