Amitayus Long Life Practice  from Nyala Pema Dündul's Terma

con Elio Guarisco

Reserved for Dzogchen Community practitioners

Long life practices as generally presented serve the purpose of increasing our capacity and coordinating our energy. In fact, if our elements, energy, and humors are not balanced and harmonious, we become passive and receive all kinds of negativities. Then even if we are good practitioners and possess knowledge, we need certain conditions to make use of our qualities, in the first place health. The long life practice of Amitayus called Tsedrub Gongdü (tshe sgrub dgons ‘dus), Unification of the Long Life Practices, is the essential long life practice with which Guru Padmasambhava was originally empowered by Buddha Amitayus. Guru Padmasambhava applied this method with his consort Mandarava in the cave of Maratika in Nepal, obtaining power over the length of life from Chandali, the consort of Buddha Amitayus. Later he concealed this practice as a terma to be rediscovered by Nyala Pema Dündul.
I received the entire cycle of Nyala Pema Dündul’s termas including the long life practice from my teacher Ayu Khandro who had heard it directly from Nyala Pema Dündul.
