Guru Yoga is a practice of expressing one’s faith and devotion to one’s Root Lama. In the Vajrayana tradition, Guru Yoga Practice is considered to be the most important practice one can perform. Without faith and devotion to the Root Lama, one is not able to receive blessings. Blessings purify one and create the foundation for understanding the nature of one’s mind.
At the request of his students, Kyabje Dorje Chang Kalu Rinpoche wrote the Guru Yoga Practice, “A Rainfall of Blessings.” It is a practice that is short, easy to understand and perform; however, it is very profound.
