Dispeller of Obstacles The Heart Practice of Padmasambhava by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, Guru Padmasambhava Rinpoche, Pema Tashi Putsi


Dispeller of Obstacles The Heart Practice of Padmasambhava by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, Guru Padmasambhava Rinpoche, Pema Tashi Putsi

Dispeller of Obstacles is the first in a new series that will include video, audio, photos, and commentaries to support practice and is the heart essence of the accomplished 9th-century master Padmasambhava. This hidden treasure is a revelation with a rich history that is explained in the book. In addition to the root text and classical commentaries by Chokgyur Lingpa and Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo, the treasure-revealers themselves, there are also explanations by modern-day masters such as Tulku Urgyen and Orgyen Topgyal Rinpoches. This extensive cycle contains teachings and practices for the preliminaries up to and including Dzogchen. Linking to a fresh treasure has the power to imbue us with hot and juicy blessings that invigorate our being and generate devotion and joy. Just as we prefer to have fresh food, these treasure teachings are endowed with a very special quality that has not been interpolated by anyone else, but has come directly from Padmasambhava by means of one of his disciples appearing as a present-day incarnation. The teaching is then spread to people for their immediate practice.


Right now, at present and in the time of future generations there will be countless obstacles for enlightenment and for attainment on the path. To go about removing these hindrances, there is one single method that is sufficient to clear them away and that is to call upon your guru from the core of your heart. That itself will remove every type of obstacle and once cleared away that itself means that attainment is reached, right at that moment. - from the book
