Publisher's Synopsis
Based on the teachings of the great 18th century saint and visionary Rigdzin Jigme Lingpa, the instructions of Dilgo Khyentse in this book focus on the devotional practices of Guru Yoga, "merging with the Mind of the Guru". His Holiness Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (1910-1991) was a highly revered meditation master and scholar of the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism.

"The guru is like a wish-fulfilling jewel granting all the qualities of realization, a father and mother giving their love equally to all sentient beings, a great river of compassion, a mountain rising above worldly concerns unshaken by the winds of emotion, and a great cloud with rain to soothe the torments of the passions. In brief, he is the equal of all the buddhas.

To make any connect with him, whether through seeing him, hearing his voice, remembering him, or being touched by his hand, will lead us to liberation. To have full confidence in him is the sure way to progress toward enlightenment. The warmth of his wisdom and compassion will melt the ore of our being and release the gold of the buddha-nature within."
