Guru Yoga

A familiar term for vajrayana practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism, but what does it mean? What is its function? “Guru” in Sanskrit means lama in Tibetan. “La” means holy. “Ma” means mother. It is a Vajrayana title and means Wisdom and Method, which operates like electricity with a cold line and a hot line.

“Yoga” in Sanskrit means mechanism or nalgyor in Tibetan. “Nal” means normal or natural. “Gyor” means conditions. Yoga means the natural conditions of body, speech and mind.

Guru Yoga is an advanced, uncommon Vajrayana teaching of the Buddha for students with capacity. The practitioner needs to be a suitable vessel and understand this properly in order to develop their realization safely. When you fly a jet plane you need to know how to operate it, how to take off, and how to land. Ven. Lama Samten will explain this practice in simple terms.
