A prayer of lama devotion centering on the matchless Je Tsongkapa, A Thousand Angels of the Heaven of Bliss is a practice that lays the foundation for success in advanced meditation. In this weekend intensive we will cover the visualizations in this prayer which invoke the blessings of our spiritual guide and help us cultivate faith toward them.
True lama devotion comes through understanding how our deepest realizations come at the kindness of our Teachers. A brief and exquisite classic text on the steps to Buddhahood, The Source of All My Good — the second prayer we will study this weekend — shows us how finding and serving a spiritual guide is the very root of our path to enlightenment.
