Great Drikung Phowa Practice
*For those who recieved Phowa Empowerment

In the past, when the 35 Buddhas were bodhisattvas, they made many
prayers to be able to benefit sentient beings, to easily purify our
defilements and negative karma. When they achieved enlightenment, they
achieved the Buddha’s ten qualities or powers, one of which is the power
of prayer. So, their names have the power of all those past prayers. That
is why, when sentient beings recite their names, they have so much power
to purify defilements and eons of negative karma. Every single quality the
35 Buddhas attained was in order to benefit sentient beings
.
