This text arose naturally when the abbot of Siu-Gang monastery (one of the four great
monasteries in the Nyingma Pai-yul lineage in Xi-kang) Shri-gang Matrul Rinpoche
(Chokyi Nyima) saw the face of Padmasambhava in a Dzogchen state of primordial
wisdom. Rinpoche stated that if any devoted disciple of the Triple Gems who has pure
faith frequently prays with this text together with the recitation of 1 million Guru
Rinpoche mantra (OM AH HUNG BENZA GURU PADMA SIDDHI HUNG), he/she will
received sublime blessings and increase his/her accumulations of merit and wisdom,
ultimately attaining to the level of the original protector Samantabhadra.

This sublime practice was revealed by the Great Terton Chokyi Nyima (Matrul
Rinpoche) in a profound pure state. This is an extremely concise and potent practice
from amongst Rinpoches termas on Padmasambhava which has the power to liberate on
hearing. Matrul Rinpoche has said personally that any sentient being who listens to this
prayer, no matter whom, as long as he hears this prayer, his worldly fortune and merits
will increase, he will receive inconceivable blessings, in the future he will definitely be
reborn in Sukhavati (Amitabhas pureland) or Guru Rinpoches pureland. This Guru
Rinpoche prayer which liberates by hearing is extremely important and has very vast
meaning. Therefore Rinpoche hopes that this prayer would be transmitted to the whole
world so that everyone can receive the blessings of Guru Rinpoche and be liberated by
hearing.

Matrul Rinpoche and his Dharma Heir Rigar Rinpoche has compassionately given
permission that anyone who has seen this Heart-Essence Prayer to Guru Rinpoche can
recite it according to its Tibetan transliteration even without having received
empowerment or oral transmission. Later, when it is possible, it would be perfect and
auspicious if they can receive empowerment or oral transmission from a teacher.
