The Power of Guru Yoga – Khyentse Wangpo anniversary event


To celebrate the anniversary of Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, on 1st March, 2024, Khyentse Vision Project hosted a live online teaching with special guests Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche and Do Tulku Rinpoche on the power and importance of guru yoga.
Khyentse Wangpo composed many prayers and sādhanas that focus on taking devotion to one’s guru as the heart of the path to awakening. This special guru yoga, Bestower of Supreme Wisdom, was written by Khyentse Wangpo, with himself as the central figure, at the request of a devoted student.
Jigme Khyentse Rinpoche, who is an incarnation of Khyentse Wangpo himself, gave the reading transmission of this special guru yoga and taught on why guru yoga is such an important practice for students of the Vajrayāna. Do Tulku Rinpoche answered questions from the audience at the end.
Bestower of Supreme Wisdom was translated by KVP Himalayan scholar and in-house translator, Lopön Sonam Jamtsho, and is available in KVP’s reading room here.
The recording of the livestream teaching can be viewed on our youtube livestream channel.
