Friday, January 1st, 2021, we will bring in the New Year With the profound practice of Guru Yoga. This will be live-streamed at 5:00PM (PST) California time on Facebook Live. (Via Facebook Live: Manjushri Dharma Center Facebook)
In my lineage, the Guru is everything. He is Three Jewels and the Three Roots. For me, my Root Guru Kyabje Sangye Tenzin Rinpoche is the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. We are truly fortunate to be his followers and to celebrate a fully enlightened Buddha who came to this world in the form of a human being; his loving-kindness can never be repaid! Even though we don’t see him with our physical eyes, he watches over us like a sighted person taking care of the blind. Don’t think that you have never met my Guru; if you have faith and devotion, he definitely extends his compassion to you and we will all receive an unceasing rain of blessings. Everyone who has become the disciple of this Guru should rejoice!
To commemorate the loving-kindness of my Root Guru, we will hold the profound practice of Guru Yoga with the text “The Guru Practice, Rain of Blessings” composed by His Holiness the Karmapa and myself. You can find a link to the text below:
The profound practice of Guru Yoga is part of my main practice, and I always pray The Essence Request, as follows:
I pray to the precious Guru;
Grant your blessing so that my mind may give up ego-clinging. Grant your blessing so that contentment may arise in my being. Grant your blessing so that non-Dharmic thoughts may cease. Grant your blessing so that my own mind may be realized as unborn.
Grant your blessing so that illusion may be pacified in itself.
Grant your blessing so that phenomena may be realized as Dharmakaya.
Please do not miss this most auspicious opportunity to commence the New Year! Tashi Delek
