Truly understanding impermanence means recognizing both the nature of change inherent in all phenomena and the extraordinary opportunity to train your mind toward liberation. Reflecting, you begin to see that you must not waste precious time. As soon as you were born, it was guaranteed that you will eventually die. This inevitable death will deprive you of any opportunity to practice. Begin to realize clearly that, instead of putting off practice until some future time, you must begin right now to extract some meaningful essence from your human birth. The point of understanding impermanence is not to feel sad about it, but to use it as an incentive to overcome laziness.⁣

Hey All,

I just wanted to write to the lamas and everyone to let you all know that I have had a really good experience with the practice of reciting the Seven Line Supplication to Guru Rinpoche 11,000 times and thank Lama Sonam for the requirement.

I have been struggling to complete my Ngondro since 2009.  I had switched to the Dudjom Tersar Ngondro in the hopes that it would be easier to complete in 2019 but still struggled.  Even in 2009 I truly wanted to complete my Ngondro, I had done every thing I could to address the issues I had with keeping a consistent practice.  

Last year I went to the Ngondro retreat and Lama Sonam required 11,000 seven line supplications as a way to clear obstacles to meditation practice and something just clicked.  I did struggle to practice daily, but I got to about 5000 recitations before the start of the 2023 Ngondro retreat.  But something happened to me when I spoke to my meditation instructor and just practiced diligently and completed the last 6000 before and during the retreat!  I finished a few days before the end!

Knock on wood, but I can say that my practice definitely improved. Before the 11,000 my practice could fall into lulls, but the big thing was that I struggled to do more than one reading of the Ngondro a day even with how short it is. Now I take time to touch in with the practice even when I have some down time, and in the past few weeks I have done Ngondro practice at least twice a day and for accumulations. That is what is telling me that something has definitely changed. With that said, I certainly ask if you all could pray for the steady progress in my practice so I don’t jinx myself with sharing the good news. 🤞

For some reason something just clicked when I heard about that practice and it worked. I do think it took some natural seasoning to create a feeling of personal connection to Guru Rinpoche, but I truly wish I had been instructed to do this practice when I started Ngondro years ago.  It was very sad and troubling and discouraging for me to struggle with meeting aspiration and intention with action.  I feel so bolstered and I would like to accumulate a total of 110,000.  And that seems very possible for me 😁.

With that said, to support my practice, I read Sole Panacea and Mipham Rinpoche’s White Lotus. Does the Shower of Blessings Sadhana need a transmission of any sort to begin practicing? Please advise.

Thank you, thank you, thank you.  I feel I am now developing more as a practitioner.  It has been an important vision of mine and it feels so good to see it being realized.  Thank you all sooo very much 🙂

All the best,
