Dear friends near and far

Happy Guru Rinpoche Day to you all! At the moment I am in Chile and this morning recorded a short video for this month’s email in which I mention three simple points:

  1. Remember how fortunate we are to have the dharma in our lives. Remember and make use of this and carry it into your lives!
  2. The most important thing, as I have said many times before, is one’s motivation. So recall the motivation of bodhicitta and the four immeasurables and train in them again and again and again.
  3. All dharma teachings and practices can be contained within bodhicitta, so please apply this.

So let’s all make an effort to remember how extremely lucky we are and no matter what our circumstance may now be, whether good or bad, apply the precious dharma in our lives.

Lastly I would like to encourage all of you to keep on reciting the Six Vajra Lines and register your accumulations on the website. This way when we reach a total of 100 million accumulations, we will all share in the merit and blessings of that.

That’s it for today. Please take care and happy Guru Rinpoche Day.

With prayers and aspirations.

Sarva Mangalam,

Phakchok Rinpoche
