On the day of the eclipse is a very powerful day. It helps with our liberation. I will teach three yogas.

[1]The first yoga is Body Yoga. In Body Yoga visualize your whole body as blue colour of Vajra. Place your hands together above your head and the soles of your feet together. This is the body posture that represents the Vajra. Now think of blue light spreading to connect with Buddhas and Bodhisattvas and all sentient beings. As a Vajra, All is Vajra Buddhahood and there is no samsara. This is the Light of Buddhahood. This is Body Yoga.

[2] The second is Speech Yoga or Mantra Yoga. It is all Buddha’s and Bodhisattva’s essence mantra that is in union and represented by Guru Padmasambhava’s mantra. By doing Guru Padmasambhava’s mantra it is like doing each mantra for every Buddha and Bodhisattva together. It is very special for yoga practitioners. This is a very meaningful and useful mantra and it greatly helps practitioners.

[3] Mind Yoga is the Four Immeasurables. Think of the Four Immeasurables. You can visualize Guru Padmasambhava, prostrations, offering, and the Seven Line Prayer. It is more important to visualize Guru Padmasambhava blessing us and all sentient beings and for us to understand the nature of mind. Rest and relax in your Buddha Nature. Rest for ten minutes on this day.

I strongly encourage all my students and friends to do this on the day of the eclipse. Also, do the Samantahbhadra prayer. If you have time do this prayer three times. If you don’t have time, only do it once.

Finish by dedicating all virtues for the liberation of all sentient beings.
