To become a dharma teacher
with all the different mantras and yidams it is sometimes difficult for me to choose a steady practice, being that I do not have access to a lama directly. So my question is; what mantra should be my main mantra for someone who wishes to learn and eventually teach the holy Dharma?
Many greetings, good wishes and sincere hopes in you….
1. There are many yidams, meditations, practices, accomplishments, mantras and paths as set forth by the Perfect Buddha. They were all meant to suit a type of mind to be subdued at a certain time and place. Are all are equal to attainments from their side. From our side according to time, place, needs, level and merits, they can differ.
2. One who wishes to teach the dharma will be aspiring to highest form of giving. The most supreme among the best. If the perfect Buddha never spoke, there would be no path, no antidote, no method, no end and no recognition of need to escape. Hence teaching is the actual method to give the most supreme of refuges which is dharma.
3. One who has the aspiration to teach must have the three doors subdued starting now, mind filled with compassion, knowledge of the dharma coupled with skilfull means and endless enthusiasm to encounter difficulties for others. The genuine mind to endure many difficulties for others in order to bring them the words and examples to full liberation will enlighten many or at least plant karmic seeds in their mindstreams for when Maitreya appears.
For such a virtuous individual one can engage in the intense practice of Guru Yoga of Tsongkapa which bestows the 7 wisdoms including: powerful memory, skilfull debate, composition, penetrating insight and the likes. After reciting migtseyma twenty-one times concentrate on Om Ah Ra Baza Nadee daily. Afterwards Dissolution of Wisdom Tsongkapa at the end of the session into your heart centre through central channel will be a powerful blessing to invoke daily. A powerful practice that is simple and requires no initiation.
In short, eat Tsongkapa, breathe Tsongakapa, think Tsongkapa, meditate Tsongakapa, become Tsongakapa, sleep Tsongkapa and attain the wondrous blessings within this supremes system practiced for 600 years by the tens of thousands of attained Tulkus, learned Geshes, Mahasiddhas, senior monks of Gaden, Sera, Drepung, Tashilunpo, Amdo Tashi Kyil, Gyuto and Gyurme. The practice of Wisdom Tsongkapa has created luminaries like the Dalai Lamas, Panchen Lamas, Jamyang Konchok Shepas, Trijang Rinpoches, Pabongka Rinpoches, Gaden Tripas, etc etc…by engaging in this practice steadfast and consistently you will be following in the footsteps of thousands of attained luminaries as stated above. You will be following a fautless and proven practice.
Lord Tsongkapa, King of the Three Realms, who is no other than the fully combined wisdom of Buddhas of three times and ten directions can only bring benefit. This should be practiced by a virtuous being like you who wishes to illuminate the dharma to many others in the future. Tsongakpa’s the perfect yidam for someone who aspires for the perfect results without many commitments at the moment yet wishes to engage in a profound practice.
