For most Himalayan Buddhists, Guru Rinpoche is the second Buddha, the Buddha of all enlightenment forms and teachings, with a focus on the tantras. Tantra teaches us to first see our teachers as Guru Rinpoche, just as the Great Way leads us to see and name our enlightened nature as Buddha-nature. Then we see everything through the eyes of Guru Rinpoche, right down to our atoms, all beings equally, and every scrap of every blade of grass, every grain of sand. Finally, when we recognize our natural, timeless awareness, we recognize Guru Rinpoche.
