Good job!

So now on to mandala offering, Vajrasattva and Guru Yoga (and maybe more).

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."

This too will end :smile:

Let me know if you need to chat about this, I found that speaking to people when you hit the wall helps a lot.

Best wishes :namaste:

Thanks a lot :smile: At the moment it's going quite smoothly - but at the current rate I will only finish prostrations and vajrasattva (was told that I can do them together) by end 2012... but that's ok....

all the best :hi:

Doing them together? I never thought of that.
I am now starting the Vajrasattva / Dorje Sempa part of the practice, and I would also aim to be finished with that towards the end of next year. Or not :roll:

I'm travelling quite a lot for my job so I'm actually not always able to do prostrations so that's probably one of the reasons why my teacher said I could do them together.... keeps the momentum going...

Enjoy the vajrasattva practice - it's a wonderful one :namaste:
