Make your Life and Practice One

… taking your own mind as witness, make your life and practice one, and at the time of death, with no thought of anything left undone, do not be ashamed of yourself. This itself is the pith instruction of all practices.

Embodiment of Supreme Knowledge and Love …

Embodiment of supreme knowledge and love
Of all Buddhas of the three times,
Kind Lama, my sole source of refuge,
Jigdral Yeshe Dorje,

You reside inseparably
At the crown of my head,
As an ornament of the cakra of great exaltation.
Always look upon me with compassion.
I pray!

I do not search elsewhere with hope.
These are not mere mouthed words.
From the very bottom of my heart,
Again and again, I pray to you!

Sublime Lama,
Your blessings now enter all beings’ mindstreams, including my own.
Infallible Lama, think of me
That I attain the result, your state,
In this very life.
Think of me, Lama, think of me!

I, Jigdral Yeshe Dorje, wrote this, simply not to refuse responding to the earnest requests of the previous awareness-holder’s attendant-disciple name Dampa Dzom.

May there be virtue and excellence!

Essential Advice for Solitary Meditation Practice Part 3

Third, Post-Meditation

How the teachings encompass keeping vows and tantric commitments, and applying them in your daily life.

Although you applied yourself in the practice of the view, meditation and conduct as described above, if you were unskillful in post-meditation’s conduct, and your vows and tantric commitments were damaged, impediments and obstacles will hinder your progress on the paths and spiritual stages in the short term, and ultimately you will certainly fall to the lowest hell called Incessant Pain. Therefore, it is extremely important to never be separate from vigilant mindfulness, not making any mistakes regarding the kind of conduct to accept and which to reject.

Dudjom Jigdral Yeshe Dorje (1904 – 1987), the second Dudjom Rinpoche, was the head of the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.
