6 Vajra Lines Accumulation
Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche has asked his sangha as well as all who are inspired to take part to accumulate 10,000,000 (ten million) recitations of the Six Vajra Verse supplication yearly.
This blessed supplication was revealed as a treasure by the great treasure revealer Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa in the 19th century. The first three lines are supplications to three forms of Guru Rinpoche, the fourth line is requesting Guru Rinpoche to grant blessings, the fifth line is requesting that all levels of obstacles may be removed, and the sixth line is requesting that all wishes may be spontaneously accomplished.
It is taught that there is no greater refuge in these times than Guru Padmasambhava. Make this supplication with a sense of weariness towards samsara, with love and compassion towards all sentient beings, and a heart full of genuine devotion. There is no doubt that the blessings will manifest in one’s mind stream when you supplicate in this way.
THE PATH OF MEDITATION
The Path of Meditation follows the Mahāmudrā teachings of the Kagyu lineage of Tibetan Buddhism. Our online program covers the first year of meditation following the gradual path laid out by Phakchok Rinpoche during his worldwide retreats. The program also incorporates the pith instructions on view and meditation from Phakchok Rinpoche’s main root gurus, Kyabje Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche and Kyabje Nyoshul Khen Rinpoche along with many other great masters of the lineage.
THE NINE YĀNAS CURRICULUM
The Nine Yānas Path provides a scriptural and philosophical basis for all teachings of Buddha Shakyamuni and Guru Rinpoche. It follows the traditional teachings and practices of the Nyingma lineage and incorporates teachings and texts of all Vajrayāna traditions and philosophical schools. Practicing the Nine Yānas gives us an invaluable framework with which to better understand and implement the Buddha’s precious teachings. By studying, contemplating, and meditating in stages like the levels of a staircase, we can gain realization more swiftly.
TRADITIONAL VAJRAYĀNA PATH
The Traditional Vajrayāna Path focuses on the tantric path of the Nyingma tradition of Tibetan Buddhism with an emphasis on the practices of the Chokling New Treasures tradition (Chokling Tersar). This path requires receiving the empowerments, transmissions and explanations together with study and learning in order to assimilate the views and methods that underlie the path of secret mantra practice. Ngöndro (Preliminary Practices) is a common entranceway into this path and we now offer an online support program containing teachings, support and guidance.
