The purpose of this meditation is to draw closer to our Spiritual Guide by remembering his good qualities.
I began by making the appropriate preparations for meditation, and then started by thinking of how my Spiritual Guide presents Dharma to me in a way that is easy to understand and practice. I thought of the words from Liberating Prayer ‘Your speech is supreme purifying nectar’.
I imputed Buddha Shakyamuni onto my Spiritual Guide and they became one – they perform the same function for me. I imagined Geshe-la speaking to me, and his words being supreme purifying nectar. It was like I was being purified completely as I listened to his voice. I focused on the recognition that his words are purifying nectar, and felt pure. I focused on this feeling for the rest of the meditation.
May all living beings receive supreme, purifying nectar like instructions.
