On the benefits of the Vajra Guru Mantra

“This is the essence mantra of all Sugatas, the accomplishment practice of all Victorious Buddhas in one. By meditating upon Me and reciting the Siddhi mantra, you will traverse the fifteen bhumis and five paths. It is the same as reading all the teachings of all the Buddhas of the three times.”

Also, “This will awaken you from clinging to the solidity of appearing existence. It is the condensation of all the Victorious Buddhas of the three times. It is indivisible from all lamas. It subdues all elemental spirits and arrogant spirits. Dakinis and dharma protectors will gather like clouds. All the male and female dakas and dakinis be overjoyed and come to bestow supreme and common siddhis. If you do not receive signs of accomplishment, then I, Padmasambhava, have deceived sentient beings. Therefore, my future fortunate son, keep this in your heart. Samaya.”

Also, “By reciting Padmasambhava’s twelve-syllable essence mantra twelve hundred thousand times, the seed of samsara will be eliminated. By reciting it 36 hundred thousand times, one will reach the level of the Awareness-Holders. By reciting it ten million times one will become equal to me, Padmasambhava.” ~ as said by Guru Rinpoche

Lama Sonam Rinpoche reminds us that, “Our teacher, the perfect Buddha, through his great skillfulness and limitless compassion, gave an unimaginable variety of nectar-like Dharma teachings according to the different predispositions, faculties, and fortune of beings. The most supreme, the very best of all those teachings, is this complete and deceitless clear light Secret Mantra Vajrayana vehicle through which one can accomplish buddhahood in one lifetime, in which there is the path of diligent practice for those whose are inclined to gradual progress, and the supreme sudden path for those of the sharpest faculties and who have a karmic connection from past lives.

“We have the good fortune and karmic connection to have faith in the Lama, Guru Rinpoche, and to be able to practice this Colleciton of Seven Treasures, the most supreme among all Lama Accomplishment (Ladrup) practices. It was compiled by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche from seven great treasures of the Nyingma Lineage, the Gathering of Secrets (Sangwa Düpa) of Guru Chöwang, the Gathering of the Eight Commands (Kagyay Düpa) of Dorje Lingpa, the Gathering of the Innermost Essence (Yangnying Düpa) of Ratna Lingpa, the Gem Ocean (Norbu Gyatso) of Padma Lingpa, the Gathering of the Victorious Ones (Gyalwa Düpa) of Zhigpo Lingpa, the Complete Gathering of the Enlightened Intent (Gongpa Yongdü) of Düdül Lingpa, and the Complete Gathering of the Sugatas (Deshek Yongdü) of Dudjom Rinpoche himself. He compiled them all into one simple practice which encompasses the entire Nyingma Lineage, through which we can actually accomplish enlightenment in a single lifetime.”

On June 23 @ 11am Lama Sonam Rinpoche
will give the Oral Reading Transmission (Lung).

There is no practice commitment for attending the Drupchod, and people can attend as their schedule permits. The one practice commitment is to accumulate the Vajra Guru Mantra as much as possible. The accumulation of the Vajra Guru Mantra and reporting of accumulations will start when the retreat starts; Lama Sonam Rinpoche will describe the visualization during the teaching session. Rinpoche says it is good for people to say the mantra beforehand, but the accumulations won’t start till the Drupchod begins as part of the practice.

Report your mantra accumulations to offerings@vajrayana.org
