Guru Yoga

Dudjom Rinpoche III Sangye Pema Shepa

“We need to understand the distinction between faults and noble wisdom qualities. When we do, then we can recognize our master’s noble wisdom qualities and perceive our master as Buddha. If, with that kind of confidence, we then practice guru yoga even just a little bit, nothing more profound is needed. Merely by praying to and meditating upon the master, you too will awaken as Buddha. On the basis of faith and fervent devotion, it will happen.”

~ Dudjom Rinpoche III Sangye Pema Shepa

Cloud Banks of Blessings

The Prayer for Calling the Guru from Afar, Cloud Banks of Blessings, was written by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche III  Sangye Pema Shepa. It is a supplication for Dudjom Lingpa, Dudjom Yeshe Dorje and Dudjom Sangye Pema Shepa of the three Kayas to ripen our mind and to be liberated through the blessed nectar of the four empowerments.

From the colophon:

“Many years ago, Sangye Gyalmo requested me for such a supplication. I, however, felt it unnecessary at the time and left it. She persisted and so as not to refuse her earnest requests, I reflected on the teaching that the common and uncommon spiritual accomplishments result from supplicating the guru as inseparable from one’s own mind – the indivisible three kayas – and wrote this on New Year’s Day, the Year of the Metal Ox. (Feb 12, 2021).”
