Sometimes when I do visualisation in my prayer, then I have to visualise my guru as the same as my yidam. But how do I do that? Do I imagine my guru face on the yidam body, or is like half and half? Sorry if is a bit stupid, but I don't want to get it wrong and I think some other people also want to ask same question, but they are not dare to do so.
It is not a stupid question. There are many ways to do this and you have to find one that suits you right now. You could visualize your yidam with your gurus face, or if that don't work you can just visualize your guru or your yidam with the feeling that they are inseparable. You do whatever feels easier for you. If devotion grows stronger you are hitting the right spot I would say. The main point in visualizations is to boost the meaning of whatever you recite at that moment, so understanding the meaning of what you recite is the clue.
