Theory and Practice of Guru-Yoga

Guru-yoga is one of the preliminaries, it’s a ngondro practice. A guru is a highly realized spiritual master, who helps us to be more constructive, more positive, and to gain more and more good qualities. Guru-yoga signifies the joining together of our qualities of body, speech and mind with the body, speech and mind of the spiritual teacher, seeing the Buddha-nature in the spiritual teacher. What we are connecting is our own Buddha-nature with the Buddha-nature of the spiritual master. Guru-yoga has both a sutra and a tantra level. The sutra level of it is the foundation and basis for the tantra level practice. This series of talks also details a seven-part practice offered to the spiritual teacher for building up positive force.
