Memories from Guru Rinpoche Empowerment and Rinpoche’s Personal Retreat
With his great compassion, Rinpoche recited the Guru Rinpoche prayers and mantra with us on the 11th. The next day he performed Guru Rinpoche Empowerment. The text he uses is Lamai Gongtu “Embodiment of teachers,” which belongs to the Nyingma tradition. It’s a terma discovered by a Bonpo tertron. As mentioned earlier in this blog, Rinpoche has received several transmissions and empowerments from both Bonpo and Nyingma masters.
After the empowerment, Rinpoche spent a night with all of us before entering a personal retreat at the mantra stupa for 2 nights. We felt grateful to his kindness towards us. His blessing is like a shower of nectar.
