Of all the devotional prayers used as a support for Dharma practice, the Seven-Line Prayer is the most essential, often repeated many thousands of times by practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism. This concise prayer invokes the blessings of Padmasambhava, also called Guru Rinpoche (“Precious Teacher”) and known as the Buddha of our time.
Although the prayer is short and simple, its different levels of meaning make this commentary a welcome study aid for practitioners. The book also includes the text of the Seven-Line Prayer in English and Tibetan.RelatedCheck items to add to the cart orAuthor BioThinley Norbu (1931–2011) was a master teacher of the Nyingma lineage of Tibetan Buddhism, with many devoted students in the West as well as Asia.
