Hi

There is also one by Rigpa, it also contains a lot of other prayers to Guru Rinpoche. http://www.rigpawiki.org/index.php?titl ... _Blessings

"To reject practice by saying, 'it is conceptual!' is the path of fools. A tendency of the inexperienced and something to be avoided."
- Longchenpa

"Even though you have recognized your essence, if you do not get accustomed to it,
You will be carried away by the enemy of thoughts, like a small child in a battle field.
So long as you are not free from the limitations of accepting and rejecting,
That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."

Wow thanks! Now I really don't know which to get! :thinking:

Do you know if the RIgpa book contains the original Tibetan text as well?
