Eva Natanya, 07 Apr 2020

We begin with a brief meditation from Dudjom Rinpoche’s compilation of the extensive practice of the preliminaries; a calling of blessings for the guru.

Eva (Yangchen) continues with her explanation of the refuge visualization, specifically the figures of the Sangha, Yidam and Dharma protectors. She explains how we can visualize all sentient beings around us, including our enemies to the front of us and harmful beings and obstacles behind us.

To preface the meditation on refuge, she invites us to reflect on our deepest fears, and how they can be the fuel for us taking perfect refuge in the Mahayana path.

Meditation begins at 31:15
