 Palyul Featured Teachings: Guru Yoga
The accounts of Guru Rinpoche's miraculous birth in India and his journey to Tibet to bring the teachings there are simply one small aspect of the blessing and activity that is the totality of Guru Rinpoche.
When Guru Rinpoche came to the Land of Snows and the king of Tibet prostrated to him, the king bowed and touched his head to what he thought was the knee of Guru Rinpoche seated in front of him.
The inexhaustable adornment of Guru Rinpoche's form is the essence of the sangha principle; that of his speech, the dharma principle; that of his mind, the principle of buddha as a source of refuge.

 Guru Zhichen Ontrul - The Gyalwang Drukpa's website
As prophesized by Dzogchen Thubten Chokyi Dorje, Zhichen Ontrul Rinpoche was born in Amdo of Eastern Tibet.
He had no fear because he was confident of his guru's guidance, but he felt sorry that lives were sacrificed easily, for example wild animals were killed to feed the hungry people, and people were killed by the harsh weather and the aggressive military activities.
At the same time, Ontrul Rinpoche was able to differentiate among his group of escapers, practitioners who were calm and compassionate in such a tragic situation and non-practitioners who simply panicked and distressed over the pain and loss of their possessions and loved ones, among these people, many were great masters in his time.

My first guru, Thuksey Rinpoche, Ngawang Gyurmed Pelsang, was born in 1916, as the son of the 10th Gyalwang Drukpa and the grandson of Mahasiddha Shakya Shri.
Thuksey Rinpoche in Tibetan language actually means 'The Precious Heart Son,' in that 'Son' not only postulates the biological essence of great enlightenment but also the wisdom of its own nature.
Thereafter, my guru was entrusted with the duty of resettling the Drukpa order as refugees in the middle of nowhere, and of looking for the reincarnation of the 11th Drukpa.

 Guru Rinpoche   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Guru Rinpoché is the very spirit of Buddhism as it comes to one country after another, one person after another.
Thus, stories of Guru Rinpoché 'subduing' local demons and negative forces can be viewed reasonably as ways of explaining the way in which local superstitions, fears and primitive beliefs dissolve with the arrival of enlightened intelligence and ethics.
The dialogue between disciple and guru is really the age-old interplay of illusion and truth, darkness and light, the relative and the ultimate.

Guru Yoga is quite simply a vehicle to tie one's heart and path to Guru Rinpoche a.k.a.
The essence of Guru Yoga is simply to remember the guru at all times: when you are happy, think of the guru; when you are sad, think of the guru; when you meet favorable circumstances, be grateful to the guru; and when you meet obstacles, pray to the guru, and rely on him alone.

 Guru Devotion by Shangpa Rinpoche
The Guru is loaded with these because of his life-time’s practice and development which gradually lead to his accumulation of such large qualities of knowledge and other qualities, such that an ordinary person cannot be compared to him.
For that, the Guru is very important, because he is the one who shows you the path; he’s the one who leads you on the path; and eventually, he is the one who gives you that eye to see the truth.
Rinpoche: If the initiations are not received accidentally but done with deliberate purpose and during the initiation, you feel that you are completely in that mandala of the initiation and you keep the samaya bond, the Guru-disciple relation is already established regardless of whether you have started or finished the four foundation practices.

 On Guru Rinpoche's Supplication
Guru Rinpoche composed seven chapters of supplications for students to recite to him, and this one comes from a chapter that he taught to the monk whose name was Namkha'i Nyingpo.
Guru Rinpoche instructs: "Let them rest in the realm of sound and emptiness/Past all thought, beyond imagination." This is an instruction to rest free of clinging to sounds as being truly existent, free of clinging to them as being real.
We supplicate Guru Rinpoche at the end of the verse, because even though we know that sounds are sound and emptiness, we are obscured from realizing that directly by our thoughts that cling to sounds as being truly existent.

 Eight Manifestations of Guru Rinpoche   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
In Tibet the Great Guru concealed thousands of Dharma treasures in eighteen forms, to be recovered at an appropriate time by reincarnations of himself or his disciples.
Thus, in most biographies of the Great Guru, episodes are couched in metaphorical language and may seem ambiguous; this style of expression reflects the true nature of Padmasambhava, for essential meanings are always revealed in silence, beneath the level of specific words and concepts.
The Guru’s teaching will last to the coming of the future Buddha Maitreya, for it expresses the wholeness of enlightenment, and is never separate from human awareness.

It is not as though the guru is in any way separate from the Three Jewels, but because of the crucial nature of our relationship with the guru in such practice and teachings, the guru is considered of great importance.
If a master is authentic, he or she will be either a member of the sangha that requires no more training, or at least the sangha that still requires training but is at an advanced level of realization.
Even in the case of an authentic guru, it is crucial for the student to examine the guru's behaviour and teachings.
