Christmas is the perfect time to brush up on this powerful tool to make our speech both helpful and highly effective. If you have a family, a job, an important meeting, or even a dinner party – don’t leave home without it!
How often do we get to use our speech beneficially? And even when we do, our words can lack power, people misunderstand us, don’t listen, or don’t believe what we say.
The speech blessing harnesses the power of speech from beyond samsara. It makes our speech powerful and able to accomplish what we say, including our aspirational prayers. It is also a complete purification practice and a blessing of your body, speech and mind.
With illustrations and simple step-by-step instructions, we can all learn to do this essential practice.
The benefits of meditating in this way are that it perfects the power of speech and multiplies the number of any mantra you recite ten million times. The power of mantras also cannot be disturbed by black food. If you have done this practice in the morning, until sunrise the next morning, all your gossip becomes the recitation of mantra by the power of this practice. After you have done this practice, none of your gossip is a waste!Lama Zopa Rinpoche
