existence of the complete Buddhist path to enlightenment in our world
depends solely upon those who have generated both the intellectual
understanding of the teachings and the realizations of the path within
their minds. Those who have done this are the lineage lamas. During this
practice, we invoke all the lamas of the graduated path lineage
beginning with Shakyamuni Buddha himself, extending to our present
direct teachers who have shown us the path. We pay homage to them, make
offerings, and request each of them to please bless our minds with the
same realizations that they themselves have generated. By offering
sincere, heartfelt requests, we make our minds ripe to receive the full
blessings of this precious lineage and quickly actualize the
realizations we need to attain enlightenment. If we wish to experience
realizations quickly, the practice of Lama Chopa Jorcho is indispensable.
this Guru Puja, which is an integration of the three deities, makes it
much easier to achieve enlightenment in a brief life of this degenerated
time. Doing this practice every day, with purification and many
infinite skies of merit, brings the mind closer to the path to
enlightenment and closer to enlightenment itself, and so much closer to
freeing all sentient beings from obscurations and suffering and leading
them to enlightenment. Putting the meaning of this into practice in ones
life makes each day extremely rich and worthwhile."
