What happens when a guru blesses you?
Does he or she passes over some special force of goodness or merits,
that is so special, so subtle,
that it can’t be seen, or even felt?
But the truest blessing
is one that is heartfelt, that you are mindful of,
that transforms your life forever,
when the guru shares Dharma instructions,
which resonate and awaken.
If a guru can simply bless all in the moment,
and alleviate all suffering of all beings,
the Buddhas themselves would have done so already,
and there would be absolutely no suffering.
But alas, karmic affinity and action is needed to be blessed.
