Heartfelt Dharma Aspiration Prayer
Dzogchen Khenpo Choga Rinpoche has requested that all local Sanghas and individual students practice the Heartfelt Dharma Aspiration Prayer for the Dzogchen Lineage Internship as much as possible between now and the beginning of the Internship on June 28, 2009. There are three important times Rinpoche has requested we practice this prayer:
- Daily, on an individual basis, of which we recommend the Main Prayer, and the Supplemental section when time and positive conditions permit.
- Weekly, with your Sangha, whenever you get together for practice.
- Lastly, on the full moon. Try to plan accordingly within your Sangha and get together to practice for all beings!
Khen Rinpoche has stressed that for the benefit of all beings it is imperative we generate the positive energy necessary to organize and plan a successful three-month Dzogchen Lineage Internship. Without such success, it will be much more difficult to train teachers for this world and preserve the Buddha’s teachings. We therefore encourage you to practice this prayer, the "Preliminary Practice" in The Buddha Path, and Visualization of Buddha Shakyamuni as much as possible for the benefit of all beings! Always know that your positive practice is the root of all beneficial activities and the root of world peace!
We rejoice in your good practice!
