In this dark age, the dregs of time, when beings are immersed in constant suffering from the three poisons of ignorance, aggression and attachment, when the five negative emotions are more turbulent than ever before, and when there is terrible sufferings from illness, poverty, famine, hunger, and the threat of war, the blessings of Guru Rinpoche are even quicker to act.  He himself has pledged that in such and age, whenever a person prays to him, he will respond immediately with his blessings.  And these are not just sweet words meant to please, but the true, undeceiving words of Guru Rinpoche.
