Phakchok Rinpoche encouraged all his students and friends to start the New Year on March 3rd, the beginning of Chötrul Düchen with the collective recitations of the Seven Line Prayer to Guru Rinpoche. Rinpoche and his monks also accumulated this auspicious prayer during the month of Bumgyur Dawa to receive the blessings from our Mahaguru.
Samye Institute is delighted to announce that our global sangha has accumulated over 518,000 recitations of this prayer! We rejoice in this immense overflowing of merit! May the merit of our accumulation bring benefit to all suffering sentient beings!
We encourage you to make this prayer part of your daily practice. The great Nyingma master, Mipham Rinpoche has written an extensive commentary on this essential prayer in the text called The White Lotus, which reveals the Outer, Inner, and Secret meanings of this prayer. You can hear this prayer being recited by Tulku Migmar Tsering and Oriane Lavole at Gomde New York in Samye Insitute’s chant library.
Pray in this way over and over again.
Create a feeling of yearning and longing
So intense that tears spring from your eyes.
If the rapture of devotion overwhelms you,
Breathe out strongly, and then leave everything as it is.
Clear and awake, focused and undistracted, look within.
From a treasure teaching revelation of Guru Chöwang, one of the five Tertön Kings, on supplicating Guru Rinpoche with the Seven Line Prayer
