Sub Title: The Practice of Guru Yoga According to the Longchen Nyingthig Tradition
Summary: "The guru is like a wish-fulfilling jewel granting all the qualities of realization, a father and mother giving their love equally to all sentient beings, a great river of compassion, a mountain ris­ing above worldly concerns up-shaken by the winds of emotion, and a great cloud with rain to soothe the torments of the pas­sions. In brief, he is the equal of all the buddhas. To make any connection with him, whether through seeing him, hearing his voice, remembering him, or being touched by his hand, will lead us toward liberation. To have full confidence in him is the sure way to progress toward enlightenment. The warmth of his wisdom and compassion w.ill melt the ore of our being and re­lease the gold of the buddha-nature within."

In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, devotion to the spiritual master and complete confidence in him are considered to be indispensable in the attainment of enlightenment. Based on the teachings of the great eighteenth-century saint and visionary Rigdzin Jigme Lingpa, the instructions of Dilgo Khyentse in this book focus on the devotional practices of Guru Yoga, "merging with the Mind of the Guru." His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (1910-1990 was a highly revered meditation master and scholar of the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. He is also the author of Heart Treasure of the Enlightened Ones.
