Brief Notes on the Visualization for the Concise

Recitation of the Pure Vision Preliminary Practice

by Kyabje Dudjom Rinpoche

Namo guruye!

There are two stages to the practice of this preliminary phase of the profound path:
the common and uncommon.

I. Common Preliminary Practices: Meditation for the Recitation of the

the Four Causes of Renunciation
Namo means I pay homage. To whom do we pay homage? To the one who is
always unfailing and will never deceive us, the supreme and constant refuge or
protector who is the embodiment of the Three Jewels, our precious root lama. Begin
by praying to the lama in this way, with an understanding of why you do so, saying:
Care for me! You know me!

Then reflect as follows:

A physical support such as this, adorned with the abundant qualities of the
freedoms and advantages, is extremely difficult to obtain. This body that I have
now obtained, like everything else that is born, will not last forever, and is bound
to die. At that time, this body will be left behind, but the mind will continue, directed
by whatever beneficial and harmful actions I have accumulated, and, as a result, I
will experience conditions of happiness or suffering, according to the inevitable laws
of cause and effect. No matter where I might be reborn, whether in a high state or a
low state, wherever I am among the three realms of sasra, I will be forever beset
by the turbulent waves of this vast ocean of suffering. As I recognize the reality of
this situation, may my mind turn towards the sacred Dharma!

II. The Uncommon Preliminary Practices

In this there are seven sections.

1. Taking Refuge
Consider your precious root master is actually present in the space before you. He
appears in the form of Guru Rinpoche, and he embodies the Three Jewels and all the
sources of refuge. Take refuge in him and offer prostrations, thinking: From now
until I obtain the essence of enlightenment, I take refuge in the Lama and the
Three Jewels, respectfully, with my body, speech and mind.

2. Generating Bodhicitta
Consider that the objects of refuge are your witness, and train your mind in
bodhicitta, thinking: From now until sasra itself is empty, I shall train in the
activity of the bodhisattvas in order to accomplish the benefit and wellbeing of all
sentient beings (who were once my very own parents).

3. Mandala Offering
Taking a plate that is arranged with heaps that symbolize the offerings, think: In all
my lives, my body, my possessions and all my glories, together with all the sources
of my merit, I offer to the Three Jewels in order to complete the two
accumulations(of merit and wisdom).

4. Visualization and Recitation of Vajrasattva

Consider that you maintain your ordinary form and visualize the following: At the
crown of my head, is my own root lama, inseparable from glorious Vajrasattva.
From his body flows a stream of bodhichitta nectar, entering at the aperture of
Brahm at my crown and filling the whole of my body, purifying all my harmful
actions, obscurations, and impairments and breakages of vows and commitments, so
that none remains. Recite the hundred-syllable mantra and the six-syllable mantra
as many times as possible, and then, at the end, consider that Lama Vajrasattva is
pleased, and, granting his approval, melts into light and merges with your own
perception, so that you become inseparably one.

5. Guru Yoga
Consider that in the sky before you your kind root lama appears in the form of
Guru Padmasambhava, actually present there before you. Pray to him fervently,
thinking, The embodiment of all the buddhas of the ten directions and three times,
incomparable root lama, I pray to you from the depths of my heart with fervent
devotion. In this life and in the next, and in the bardo states, guide me with
compassion, without ever parting, and grant me your blessings, continuously at all

Recite the Vajra Guru mantra as many times as possible in order to invoke his
wisdom mind. Then, consider that rays of light emanate from the three syllables at
the Gurus three centres and dissolve into you, purifying the four kinds of
obscuration. While imagining that you are granted the four empowerments in their
entirety, recite VAJRA GURU KYA VAKA CITTA SIDDHI H and receive the
four empowerments.

6. Transference of Consciousness (phowa)
Make the following prayer as many times as possible and develop the intention to
transfer your consciousness: I pray to the protector Amitbha, the Buddha of
Limitless Light, who is inseparable from the lama. By your blessings may I
accomplish the profound path of phowa and be reborn in Sukhvat.

7. Giving Ones Body

Make the following prayer of aspiration: Now I dedicate my body, my possessions,
and all my merits and even their causes from the past, present and future, all
together, to all beings. I surrender them with no feelings of remorse. May I
accomplish great waves of benefit for all beings, without hindrance and according
to their wishes.

All these practices should be sealed by the three noble principles: the noble
preparation, main part and conclusion.

In response to a request by Jampa Chdzin, a diligent practitioner from the Draksum

area of Kongpo, I, Jna, wrote down whatever came to mind during a single session.
May virtue abound!
