When practicing guru yoga, we are not only visualizing Guru Rinpoche, but also visualizing the union of inner guru and outer guru, we receive empowerment through the blessing from outer guru, and the benefits of the empowerment is the cause of vast, secret, wisdom and word empowerment bestowed by guru, and the consequence is we can reach the achievement of the five kayas and widoms such as dharmakaya, sambhogakaya, and nirmanakaya…etc in the future, the empowerment in the same time will also cleanse the most subtle habits and obstacles of three gates. Under the moment, we need to focus on our guru, and guru rinpoche, and in the same time dedicating the merits of practicing guru yoga to all the sentient beings, praying for reaching the great accomplishment of buddhahood, or even attaining vidyadhara in Guru Rinpoche’s pureland (Oddiyana) before buddhahood. We need to pray for these great acomplishments not just for small worldly benefits (health, wealth…etc), and these worldly benefits will follow without pursuing deliberately.
