The "Rain of Wisdom" or Kagyu Gyurtso is a compilation of the spontaneous songs of realization of the Kagyu gurus. During Milarepa Day practice centers in the mandala of Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche would recite the entire book over the course of one day. It is a profound method for experiencing the blessings , Tibetan ,"jinlap", Sanskrit ,"adhistana." It is often said that Vajrayana is the path of blessings.
Trungpa Rinpoche was not simply a great teacher he was also a great translator. In our tradition there are translators and there are lotsawas. "Lotsawas" are great masters who are able to imbue their translations with the blessings of the lineage. This text was translated by Trungpa Rinpoche and the Nalanda Translation Commitee. Reading this text is a profound method of realizing and manifesting these blessings directly for the benefit of all beings.
"In particular, these vajra realization songs of the precious Kagyu, on merely being heard, restore awareness of faith and arouse certaintly of trust. Experience is tempered, and the confidence of realization is aroused. In short, they are the essence of the ocean of orders of tantra, the ultimate knowledge of ten million learned and accomplished ones, the heart's blood of a hundred thousand dakinis, the torch illumining the path of liberation, The very moment fortunate and perceptive disciples hear them, they are completely liberated from all bonds, and only then can become enlightened."
