Thursday the 14th of July, 2016, is a special day of Padmasambhava – one of the most important masters in history of Tibetan Buddhism. Also known as Guru Rinpoche, he is regularly referred to as ‘the second Buddha’ such is his importance to buddhists around the world.
According to the Tibetan calendar, today is particularly important as it is the Monkey Year – one that only occurs every 12 years and is strongly associated with Guru Rinpoche.
To celebrate this occasion we have created a special two-part podcast episode. First is a recording of the Gyalwang Karmapa chanting the Seven Line Prayer to Guru Rinpoche. After that we bring you a teaching that His Holiness gave on the importance of the Seven Line Prayer and his own particular experience learning and reciting it.
You can get the podcast here on iTunes or simply download the episode right here. Please make sure you subscribe in iTunes to be notified of new episodes.
