Guru Yoga Teaching by Lama Tharchin Rinpoche

“Pray to your Lama and, while praying, blend your mind inseparably with your Lama’s wisdom mind. Having merged inseparably, settle in the state of naturalness, the nature of mind.”

~ Dudjom Rinpoche, Jigdral Yeshé Dorjé
Wisdom Nectar ~ Shambhala Publications

“The point of guru yoga is to train in merging our mind with our lama’s wisdom mind and to have those qualities of wisdom and compassion that we glimpse within our lama’s mind inhabit our own mind.” ~ Lama Tharchin Rinpoche

In these Open Secret teachings, Rinpoche guides us in using guru yoga meditation on Guru Rinpoche to awaken the uncontrived, uncontaminated, primordial state of enlightenment that is our own natural, indwelling, primordial state of being.

“Devotion to the Guru is our primary support to train our minds in meditation. Lama Tharchin Rinpoche recalls that Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche said that to immerse one’s mind in the wisdom mind of the guru is the highest form of meditation. Through the mind-stream of the Guru, Great Perfection is realized. Lama Tharchin Rinpoche gives a profoundly clear and lucid step-by-step approach to Guru Yoga, meditation, and the realization of rigpa (awareness).” ~ Guru Yoga Teaching from 2002
