Four Session Guru Yoga by the Eighth Karmapa Mikyo Dorje

Four Session Guru Yoga by the Eighth Karmapa Mikyo Dorje
Commentary by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche. US$23.50 - 87 pages

The Four-Session Guru Yoga that we practice, composed by the Eighth Karmapa Mikyo Dorje, was based on an earlier guru yoga found in the writings of Lama Shangtsalpa's (Lord Gampopa's disciple) secret teachings that were sealed by command seal. Mikyo Dorje used this as the basis for his composition, altered slightly by adding a little bit to it.

There is a commentary on this practice written by the Ninth Gyalwang Karmapa Wangchuk Dorje that is impracticably long. Chakme Rinpoche wrote his commentary because until that time there was no easily accessible commentary for doing Four-Session Guru Yoga. Chakme Rinpoche's commentary presents the meditations and visualizations to be done at the various sections of the text. Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche's commentary goes through Chakme Rinpoche's explanation of the visualizations first, and then through the text word by word.

Included is the sadhana of Four-Session Guru Yoga by Mikyo Dorje and a CD with Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche chanting the sadhana.
