The Six Preparatory Practices are preliminary activities that practitioners engage in for all meditations. During this weekend teaching Rinpoche will emphasize the importance of correctly carrying out these preliminary practices. The Six Preparatory Practices are necessary causes for generating the experiential realizations of the main practice in the practitioners' minds. The preliminary activities include among other things maintaining the seven Vairochana attributes of posture and then, with a mind of extraordinary virtue, taking refuge, generating enlightenment mind, and so forth. It also includes performance of the Seven-Limb Practice.
