Seven special benefits of practicing Vajrayana

posted in: Anu yoga, Tantra | 0

In Great Exposition of the Stages of Secret Mantra Je Tsongkhapa mentions seven special benefits of practicing Secret Mantra:

(1) We receive the blessings of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas more swiftly
(2) We come under the care and guidance of our personal Deity or Yidam
(3) We shall be able to remember the Buddhas at the time of death, during the intermediate state,
and in future lives
(4) We quickly complete the collections of merit and wisdom
(5) We shall become free from all obstacles
(6) We shall accomplish both the common attainments- the pacifying, increasing, controlling, and wrathful attainments, and
the eight great attainments- and the uncommon attainment of the Union of No More Learning, or Buddhahood
(7) Our everyday bodily and verbal actions become causes to accumulate a great stock of merit.
