In 2013, the PBC Sangha collectively accumulated over 1,635,765 recitations of the Seven Line Prayer of Guru Padmasambhava! Again and again we can dedicate this merit for the enlightenement of all beings!
This year Venerable Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche is requesting the International PBC sangha to accumulate the mantra of the Medicine Buddha at least through July 2014 during the Annual PSL Dzogchen Summer retreats.
Khenpo Rinpoche says that as you recite this prayer feel the presence of the Medicine Buddha as a living buddha in the sky in front of you who embodies all the buddhas and bodhisattvas of the three times. Visualize countless blue rainbow lights emanating from his body, which instantly touch and bless all beings, completely healing all physical and mental sicknesses and disturbances. Bring up compassion and love for everyone including those close to you, and sincerely wish that they all enjoy happy and healthy long lives, all of their obstacles are removed, all their wishes for happiness and peace are fulfilled, that their realization increases, and that everyone quickly achieves enlightenment. Also pray for the long and healthy lives of all the lineage masters and world peacemakers, and that all of their wishes are quickly and perfectly fulfilled.
Recite the mantra of the Medicine Buddha with devotion while wisdom rainbow light rays continuously stream out from the Medicine Buddha's heart center in every direction. The light rays then return back to the Medicine Buddha who blesses you. He then dissolves into a sphere of light which enters your crown and merges into your heart center. Then remain in meditation, abiding in the true nature for as long as you have time for. Conclude by dedicating the merit to all beings.
