A teaching by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche, First Supreme Head of the Nyingma School in exile from Tibet; augmented by replies to questions asked by Ngak’chang Rinpoche in private audiences, relating to the short Düd’jom gTérsar ngöndro, Bodhanath, Kathmandu, Nepal, 1979.
Whatever the practice in which we engage, relative truth and absolute truth are co-existent. Method and wisdom are co-existent. Experiences and emptiness are co-existent. Because this is the nature of the reality we experience, the practice of tantric ngöndro exists as a method for realising the beginningless enlightened state.
Cascading Waterfall of Nectar Homage to the Guru!
I make offerings to the peerless Guru, the torch on the Path of liberation
Visualized upon my head inseparable from the Victorious One born from the elake.
Bless us so that myself and the disciples in my lineage
May find the excellent, unmistaken path!
I shall give you here a little encouragement to practice the supreme Dharma earnestly,
And will do so in three steps, the first of which
Concerns the way to attend a spiritual master. Continue reading
The Four Empowerments With the skillful means of the Vajrayana, the practitioner receives the blessings of the teacher in the form of rays of light.
This is the empowerment (abhiseka in Sanskrit, or wang in Tibetan). It is called “empowerment” because when we receive it we are empowered to follow a particular spiritual practice, and so come to master its realization. Most of us have received empowerment from a qualified teacher,
but to maintain the stream of blessings of the empowerment and to renew its power, we need to receive the four empowerments over and over again by ourselves, through the practice of Guru Yoga. This is in fact the most essential part of the Guru Yoga practice. In Guru Rinpoche’s own words: Continue reading
The Tibetan Buddhist calendar has special days throughout the year. This text is a commentary on the special times relating to Shakyamuni Buddha’s life, the ten Guru Rinpoche days, and the 25 dakini days, written by Tselea Natsog Rang Drol.
Guru, Buddha, and Bodhisattvas, those having mastery of compassion, to them I pay homage and go for refuge.
With the intention to benefit those having faith, a correct attitude, and a mind of virtue, here I will explain the classification, enumeration and benefits of these special days. there are three topics: the general, the particular and their distinctions. Continue reading
by His Holiness Dudjom Rinpoche Clique aqui para Portugese OM SVASTI May we obtain refuge in all our future rebirths in the Udiyanna Vajradhara who removes all difficulties,
the mere recollection of him brings about the bestowing of many desires, siddhis, and blessings just as does a wish-granting gem, a wish-granting tree, and a precious wish granting vessel. For anyone who beholds his deeds, the understanding of a disciple will grow within her or himself.
As for several occasions he displayed on the Tenth Day of the waxing moon during the twelve months of the year. Continue reading
Refuge and Bodhichitta, So, to begin with , what is it that brings us into the Buddha’s teaching? What is the door through which we must enter, the “ mental soil,” so to speak, in which we can plant the seed of Dharma?
It is taking refuge. This marks the difference between a Buddhist and a non-Buddhist, between one who is inside the teachings and one who is outside.
To take refuge is to recognize the Three Jewels of Buddha, Dharma, and Sanghaas one’s unchanging protectors, and to turn to them sincerely and with full confidence. This opens the door of the Dharma at the very outset.
When we have taken refuge in the Three Jewels, what should our fundamental attitude be? We should understand that the whole of space is pervaded by living beings; there is not one of them that has not been, at one time or another, our father or our mother.
We should recognize that they have been our parents and feel gratitude toward them for the love and kindness they have shown us. We should also realize that all these beings, once our mothers, are sinking in the ocean of the sufferings of samsara.
We should cultivate the attitude of bodhichitta, taking the decision to practice the supreme Dharma for their sake. Bodhichitta is thus the fundamental preparation and the basis of our practice of the path. Continue reading

Nagarjuna, a great Bodhisattva, said:
“Just as the wise ones will respect a statue of the Sugata
Even though it may be made of wood [and] however [unadorned] it may be,
So in the same manner, although this composition of mine may be pitiful,
May you not criticize it, for it is based on the Sublime Teaching.”
I am not saying this as my idea. This is from the Sutra and Tantra teachings of
Shakyamuni Buddha. Most people haven’t read it, and that’s why I made this
collection of teachings.
Generally speaking we must not misinterpret the teachings.
Because we have had bad habits for many lives, the truth is hard for us to
believe. That’s why it’s necessary to maintain a good relationship with our
teacher. Continue reading

I would like to briefly explain this, because people need to know the importance of these two key points. Otherwise they will be wasting their time and their life. The Buddha gave the teachings of the eighty-four thousand Dharma Gates because sentient beings have specific individual negative obscurations and each teaching was a specific antidote for that sentient being. The eighty-four thousand teachings all together are designated as the Tripitaka. In actuality the Tripitaka is the most profound and supreme among teachings. Continue reading
