The purpose of this meditation is to draw closer to our Spiritual Guide by remembering his good qualities.

Geshe Kelsang GyatsoI 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.

Dedication

May all living beings receive supreme, purifying nectar like instructions.
