Padmasambhava, also known as Guru Rinpoche and the “second buddha,” brought Vajrayana Buddhism from India to Tibet in the 8th century CE. His Dzogchen teachings are said to tame the rugged mind and bring forth the heart of enlightenment.
The Short Practice of Guru Rinpoche is one of the first guru yoga practices that Ponlop Rinpoche offered to his students in the United States. It is therefore an excellent practice to engage in as we accumulate merit, make aspirations, and celebrate the immeasurable kindness of our teacher.
This practice is now offered every other wednesday evening, alternating with the Nalandabodhi Tara Sadhana practice.
We hope to see you there.
