In the sky before me, on a lion throne, lotus and moon disk, The jetsun lama smiles with delight. There are much more elaborate forms of visualization but all these are not necessary at this time. Therefore, Lama Tsongkhapa is called the king of Dharma.
One is to purify all obstacles and interferences; the other is to grow and develop all the inner qualities. Therefore, for the development of clear wisdom, all the atoms of the amrita are visualized in the form of this seed gnaden DHI. By accomplishing this state of the Lama-Buddha, what is our purpose?
First we take refuge in the Triple Gem. Khye nam kyi means by you.
From here, in India, the direction of Tushita is to the north, high above us in space. He is shown demonstrating the Dharmachakra mudra, the gesture of turning the wheel of Dharma. So, to summarize, we have reached the point of complete inner purification by the white light and nectar that emanates from the three hearts of the three lamas, which are combined into one.
Yi wong means pleasing. Thus, first we purify all the obstacles and interferences that are within us. The words in this practice are very simple and easy to read but have extremely profound meanings. This is the true ear ornament of the fortunate. In meaning they are exactly the same.
Ganden Lha Gyäma: The Guru Yoga of Tushita’s Deva Host
So, when meditating on this, we visualize in space many offering deities—many offering gods and goddesses holding various offering objects—on gymaa clouds to either side and above the three lamas. There are people who wish to practice meditation in connection with Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri and Vajrapani and there are those who wish to develop compassion, wisdom and power. Because Lama Tsongkhapa is a buddha, his mind is in the nature of the dharmakaya; his mind resembles space, infinite space.
So, if we practice one mala for each, this makes five malas altogether. The first of these eight worldly dharmas is yearning for the pleasure and happiness of this life only.

Photo by Dan Laine. Thus by the force of strong request, From the hearts of the venerable father and sons, Hollow rays of white light emanate, Combine into one and absorb into the crown of my head. Three radiant white light tubes start from the hearts of the three lamas, concentrate into one, and that very concentrated hollow beam of light absorbs into the crown of your head. When you have finished one mala of the lama mantra for the development of clear wisdom, then go to the next stage.
The best such preparation is to take refuge in the Triple Gem and generate bodhicitta. In addition to those, many of us have also taken tantric initiations in which we have received bodhisattva and tantric vows.
On the center one is the golden throne with lotus and moon disk. Delusions are very strong and manifest grossly; 4. Simultaneously, our present spontaneous tendency to create non-virtuous actions is the best proof of the existence of past lives and the accumulation of non-virtuous actions in those lives as well.
The second line is exactly the same. This is a time of degeneration of the Dharma. Now that we have invited Lama Tsongkhapa from the heart of Buddha Maitreya, requested him to remain in front of us as a field of merit and to this field of merit have made all the offerings, including the seven-limb puja, from prostration to dedication, we offer a mandala. Be the first one to write a review. Requesting to have a stable life This second verse is the request to always remain in front of us.
Of course we have to prostrate to the lamas, but first we should know the reason for doing so. And for that purpose, to liberate sentient beings from suffering and lead them to the stage of enlightenment, then what I want to do, what I am going to do, comes in the next line: But neither are great wisdom and clear wisdom enough; we also need quick wisdom; wisdom that is very fast without taking time.
Thus we receive within ourselves the quick wisdom of every buddha. Since you have all come here with the will to practice guru yoga, if you listen carefully and practice every day it will be very beneficial for you. When we say that our body is filled with syllables of the lama mantra, it is not like a bag filled with grain; rather, the syllables fill our body like rain in a fog.
