Six Vajra Verses Accumulation

Kyabgön Phakchok Rinpoche has asked his sangha as well as all who are inspired to take part to accumulate 100,000,000 (one hundred million) recitations of the Six Vajra Verse supplication to be finished by December 2015. 

This blessed supplication was revealed as a treasure by the great treasure revealer Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa in the 19th century. The first three lines are supplications to three forms of Guru Rinpoche, the fourth line is requesting Guru Rinpoche to grant blessings, the fifth line is requesting that all levels of obstacles may be removed, and the sixth line is requesting that all wishes may be spontaneously accomplished.  

We need 100,000,000 (one hundred million) recitations by December 2015.


We have accumulated 37,502,569 recitations so far.

Guru Rinpoche Day Teachings

29 March 2015: Remember How Lucky You Are

Dear Friends Near and Far, 

Happy Guru Rinpoche Day to you all! At the moment I am in Chile and this morning recorded a short video for this month’s email in which I mention three simple points: 

  1. Remember how fortunate we are to have the dharma in our lives. Remember and make use of this and carry it into your lives! 
  2. The most important thing, as I have said many times before, is one’s motivation. So recall the motivation of bodhicitta and the four immeasurables and train in them again and again and again. 
  3. All dharma teachings and practices can be contained within bodhicitta, so please apply this.
