Blessings of Spiritual Power

Bodhisattva Vajrapani

Je Tsongkhapa is an emanation of Buddha Vajrapani, whose function is to destroy the negative minds of living beings by bestowing power on their body, speech and mind.
Liberated from the oppressive weight of negativity, we are free to power on with our lives, and reach the desired goal.

Asking for help from the holy beings is like opening the shutters on a sunny day, and letting the sun in. The sun’s always shining, all we have to do it let it in.
Buddha’s blessings are the same.
They’re always blessing the minds of living beings, it’s their job. By opening up to these blessings, we can transform our mind, and therefore our world.

Like this:

Kadampa Life: What are Blessings? As Shantideva says in the beginning of Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, Buddha’s blessings are like lightning during a dark night, quickly illuminating the environment and so forth. Similarly, Buddha’s blessings suddenly illuminate our mind with positivity, peace, and calm. At that time we are happy.

None of this would even be appearing without Geshe Kelsang
Oh Vajraholder, we prostrate at your lotus feet

Chönden showed me how to do my first e-mail,
back when we had dial-up at the Leigh Woods centre.

Plus of course all the Amitabhians, Bristolians, humans, and everybody else in the web of inter-connectedness that make any of this possible…

Oh Vajraholder, we prostrate at your lotus feet
OM AH VAJRAPANI HUM HUM PHAT! (pronounced ‘PAI’)
Recite this mantra to dispel obstacles to our practice, and other unfavourable conditions.

How cool is this? Duncan Maybury wandered around on Saturday with a camera, and this is some of what he saw through it…

Sengai-Mu has accompanied me to numerous empowerments and an ordination.

Not for him, tho Chönden did say “that’s more than most humans get to do.” 
He tends to crash out in my wheelchair when it all gets too much 😉

(* Mu, not Gen Chönden ;~)
