The seventh is aversion to hearing unpleasant things, gandn opposite of yearning for pleasant words; a dislike of unpleasant words. We should recite the above verse three times, not only repeating the words but contemplating the meaning deeply.
You should remember this very precisely because in meditation you have to visualize all the details. This is where Lhz Tsongkhapa comes out from.

Because this is for the development of clear wisdom, we should also visualize as clearly as possible that all the lights and everything else are radiant, clear and luminous.
The first line is different in some texts, where it is dag gi thog me instead of gang zhig thog me but it means more or less the same thing. How The Mind Works. Advanced embedding details, examples, and help! Thus we receive within ourselves the quick wisdom of every buddha. Lama Tsongkhapa and his disciples sacrificed all worldly pleasures such as good food and so forth to live a very simple, meditative life.
There are countless impure realms like this one, where beings are endowed with suffering; completely oppressed with suffering, karma and delusion and so forth. The gandenn mala is for purification, then there is one mala for each of the four developments of wisdom.
The third is yearning for favorable speech, words. Meditation for Clarity and Serenity.
Ganden Lha Gyama
From a quarrel between two or four people up to a war between great nations, all is for the purpose of the eight worldly dharmas. Prostration is also an antidote to pride. That is the meaning of the following verse, which we recite before the second mala of the lama mantra.
But out of ignorance, we worldly beings, not knowing this, get purposely, voluntarily and completely involved in them. But ggama Lama Sumati Kirti [Losang Dragpa, that is, Lama Tsongkhapa] is in Tushita at the feet of Buddha Maitreya, as disciple, as prince of the devas there, other manifestations of him are also in many different forms in many different worlds.

Our body is completely filled with amrita and light, and within this there are many syllables of the lama mantra. If we have this kind of natural scented water we put it in a cup or bowl and offer it.
But neither are great wisdom and clear wisdom enough; we also need quick wisdom; wisdom that is very fast without taking time. Lama Tsongkhapa is one with Manjushri.
Here gysma confess all our downfalls, all the non-virtuous actions that we have accumulated, in front of Lama Tsongkhapa. There are people who wish to practice meditation in connection with Avalokiteshvara, Manjushri and Vajrapani and there are those who wish to develop compassion, wisdom and power. Among these pure realms, the Buddha Heavenly Abode of Tushita is one of such pure realms where beings are separate from all the gross forms of suffering gtama their cause and even the word suffering does not exist.

Be the first one to write lna review. They are all in the form of light letters, absolutely luminous. From outside, we can see everything very clearly. So from outside and inside we become completely in the form of orange light.

gabden But when practicing this meditation—the light and amrita flowing down, entering us and purifying all our obstacles and filling our whole body—we should not do the visualization quickly but slowly, stage by stage. To each side of it there is a lower, smaller throne. Anyway, each of us should know what vows we have taken. In front of you there are three big heaps of clouds.
We prostrate to the lama by expressing the qualities of his body, speech and mind. Rejoicing is the supreme practice for accumulating merit.
