Concise Daily Practice with Sang and Tsok

reveaeld by Terchen Chokgyur Dechen Zhikpo Lingpa

On the tenth day of the ninth month of the Earth Monkey Year (November 7, 1848), Chokgyur Lingpa was still but twenty years old, yet the time was now ripe to reveal what would become the most renowned of his treasures: the cycle known as The Guru’s Heart Practice, Dispeller of All Obstacles (Lamé Tukdrup Barché Künsel). Khandro Yeshé Tsogyal had hidden this vast treasure twelve years aEer Guru Rinpoché’s departure from Tibet. It lay concealed beneath the foot of Drak Palchenpo (Great Glory Cliff) at Danyin Khala Rongo (Sun and Moon Valley Pass), one of the twenty-five sacred sites of Kham that represent the enlightened qualities of Guru Rinpoche’s awakened body. Chokgyur Lingpa kept this treasure hidden for eight years, after which he presented the decoded treasure to Jamyang Khyentsé Wangpo, who realized as he began to read that not only the meaning, but the words themselves were virtually identical to a treasure he himself had revealed. Realizing that their termas were not only identical in meaning, but extremely similar in wording too, they therefore decided to combine the two practices into one, Khyentsé declaring that, since Chokgyur Lingpa’s Dispeller of All Obstacles was an earth terma, its authenticity was the more clearly established of the two. At this, of one mind, they resolved to retain only The Dispeller of All Obstacles. en, with the help of Jamgön Kongtrül Lodrö ayé these teachings were spread throughout Tibet and, eventually, the world.

The Gradual Path of the Wisdom Essence (Lamrim Yesh Nyingpo) outlines The Four Cycles of Guru Yoga (Lhadrup Khorzhi), namely Barché Künsel, Sampa Lhündrup, Tsokyé Nyingtik and Guru Draktsal. Among these, the outer practice of Barché Künsel is the guru’s heart practice that clears away all hindrances, thus actualizing the siddhis. According to Kyapjé Dilgo Khyentsé Rinpoché, “It is the quintessence of a billion guru heart sadhanas, the most unique terma buried in the land of Tibet.” In the mandala of The Dispeller of All Obstacles, Guru Padmasambhava appears surrounded by his twelve emanations, each with their own unique and profound teachings and practices.

The following arrangement includes The Concise Manual for Daily Practice (Gyunkyi Koljang), the most concise guru sadhana from The Guru’s Heart Practice, Dispeller of All Obstacle cycle, along with brief lineage and dedications prayers, and both The Concise Smoke Offering (Sang) and Feast Offering (Tsok) liturgies.
