Within the Gelug tradition, practicing the six-session guru yoga is a daily commitment for anyone who has received a highest yoga tantra initiation. This text provides the commentary from Lama Zopa Rinpoche on the benefits of the practice, how to meditate on each verse of the sadhana, and the samayas of the five buddha families. The commentary uses the extension version of Phabongkha Dechen Nyingpo’s Six-Session Guru Yoga as its basis.
“Phabongkha Dechen Nyingpo said Six-Session Guru Yoga is much more precious than three galaxies filled with gold,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche teaches in Six-Session Guru Yoga Commentary. “Why? Because the practice of Six-Session Guru Yoga has unbelievable benefits. It gives incredible protection. This practice eliminates so much heavy negative karma and purifies all ten nonvirtuous actions. It purifies broken pratimoksha vows, bodhisattva vows, and tantric vows. It allows us to practice the general tantric vows, the samayas of the five buddha families, and the particular tantric root vows. By doing Six-Session Guru Yoga, we practice all the samayas and are reminded of the fourteen root downfalls and eight bompos of mother tantra samaya. We accumulate unbelievable merit by keeping the samayas and vows of tantra. According to the root tantra of Manjughosha, without practicing the pure morality of these vows, we have no basis for tantric realization and no way to achieve enlightenment. Even if we don’t do many other practices, living purely in the samaya vows is enough. Therefore, this practice gives incredible protection.”
