Three Essential Practices by Master Mitrajoki

Buddha Avalokiteshvara with two attendants Tara and Ekajati


Lodrö Tulku Rinpoche will speak briefly about Master Mitrajoki’s “Three Essential Practices”. Mahasiddha Mitrajoki lived in Nepal in the 11th century. He was invited by the translator Trophu Lotsawa to teach in Tibet. His main spiritual practice was Buddha Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Great Compassion. The three essential practices include complete instructions on sutra and tantra: Practice in life, practice in death, practice in bardo – intermediate state



This very rare transmission from the Tagphu Collection* will be given by Lodrö Tulku Rinpoche on the occasion of his birthday. Buddha Avalokiteshvara embodies the great all-embracing compassion within us and activates our potential to achieve all altruistic goals in our lives. The awakened abilities of a Buddha are that he/she is able to function without interruption with all-embracing compassion and wisdom.

Buddha Avalokiteshvara is specially supported here by two attendants: the peaceful green Tara and the wrathful powerful blue Dakini Ekajati.

The possibility of attaining wisdom and the ability to Buddha compassion lies within human potential. It can be nurtured and achieved with such a life practice or meditation.

(This transmission from great compassion can protect us from future “lower” or so-called “bad” rebirths.)

The initiation is suitable for advanced students but also for beginners.


*Master Tagphu was a fully enlightened Tibetan Tara and Avalokiteshvara practitioner from the 18th century.
