Vajra Guru Mantra

6 June 2020
Bir
Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche

At the request of Drikung Kagyu Monastery in Tso Pema, north India, Rinpoche recently gave a short teaching (in Tibetan) on the practice of the Vajra Guru mantra on the occasion of the monks’ recitation of 100 million mantras.

Rinpoche explains a number of ways in which we can chant the mantra. But even those of us, lazy buddhists, who may chant whilst walking, talking or even watching TV, if we do our best to generate supreme bodhichitta and pray one-pointedly to Guru Rinpoche, our practice will bring immense benefit to the world; so the masters of the past have said again and again. And what more could we wish for in these uncertain and tumultuous times?

A literal translation from Tibetan wouldn’t have the same flow that we’re accustomed to with Rinpoche’s teachings. So instead of subtitles, this time we have structured the translation into easy to read (and remember) bullet points and offer it to you in pdf format.
