Shower of Blessings

I was out walking the other day and clouds gathered into a spontaneous shower, unpredicted by the forecasters. I felt the unforeseen blessings drench me, raining down from a previously cloudless sky, and felt joyfully refreshed. There is a guru-yoga practice in our tradition called, “Shower of Blessings.” Through this practice of the Seven Line Prayer one enters the self-same recognition of that which our teacher mirrors—our own true luminous nature.

The sole sufficient prayer is the Seven-Line invocation. Through the power of this prayer, you will perceive the ultimate teacher’s face directly. If you recite this prayer continuously for seven or twenty-one days, accomplishments and blessings will shower upon you, and you’ll be free from every obstacle.

This is the power of practice, falling as a “gentle rain from heaven upon the place beneath.” (Shakespeare)

🙏🏼Much Love,
