Guru Yoga and Mandala Offering Retreat
The practice of Guru yoga is a special way of relying upon our Spiritual Guide.
“One moment of Guru yoga can accumulate as much merit as is accumulated over many aeons through other practices. Furthermore, the attainment of Buddhahood, which takes aeons to accomplish through other practices, can be accomplished in one life through the practice of Guru yoga. This was demonstrated by Dromtönpa, the heart disciple of Atisha, and by Khädrubje, the heart disciple of Je Tsongkhapa.
Whether or not our Spiritual Guide is precious
Depends upon us and not upon our Spiritual Guide.
If we view our Spiritual Guide as a Buddha we shall receive the blessings of a Buddha, if we view him or her as a Bodhisattva we shall receive the blessings of a Bodhisattva, and if we view him or her as an ordinary being we shall receive nothing.”
