Guru Yoga of the 14th Shamarpa - 05.06.2020

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail


Dear dharma friends, kindly take a moment to acquaint yourselves with this unbinding practice called Guru Yoga, and particularly with this Guru Yoga:

The Celebration of the Accomplishment of Blessing,

the Guru Yoga of the 14th Shamarpa,

Mipham Chökyi Lodrö, the Supreme Protector.

This practice and for that matter all Buddhist practices are not commandments.

They are not decrees.

They are not teachings.

They are momentary and spontaneous skilful means – surprises even, like a loving mother with her baby in the water, temporarily letting go to give the baby a chance to learn to swim –  intended or aspired from compassion.

Kindly delight yourselves in this practice.

Thaye Dorje, Seine Heiligkeit der 17. Gyalwa Karmapa
