The purpose of this meditation is to generate a firm reliance upon our spiritual guide.

After making the appropriate preparations for meditation, I thought about the benefits of relying upon a qualified spiritual guide and decided to focus on the sixth benefit: my practical experience of the path will increase.

I thought about how my life will become my spiritual path through reliance upon my spiritual guide, and meditated on it.

Dedication

May all living beings find their spiritual guide, and follow him or her with great devotion.

Practice in the hesitation break

I will try to put my spiritual guide’s instructions into practice.
