In any visiualization practice we see all is perfected from the very beginning and not a product of our intellect.
By that we can percieve the naturally perfection of the environment as what we can call then Buddha Field. In that field are all celestial beings, dakas and dakinis.
With intense devotion which is very powerful, we percieve our teachers as inseparable from Guru Rinpoche. So Guru Rinpoche is near like a protecting shadow.
Emaho! The "self" appearing, naturally present, perfectly pure, infinite Buddha Field... This means where beings are naturally free from the poisonous emotions, naturally inclined to practice the Dharma, and so where one can see Guru Rinpoche. So this freedom is called Buddha Field.
In contrast to this, we have this ordinary place where the beings are filled with strong poisons, such as craving, anger, pride, jealousy and miserliness, where they do not behave in accordance with the scriptures and where they are completely distracted by aims limited to this lifetime. This is what is called impure field.
If we visualize the place around us as an impure field, it will not help us. But if we do so with a pure field it will become so. Or to be more exact; we will come to realize its natural purity. (not harmful stained by own obscurations)
***May all see the very important medicine in this practice.***
Such a Buddha Field is not composed of ordinary earth-rocks and so on but of precious jewels. There are wishfulfilling trees and a lake of nectarlike water that posseses the eight qualities and confers immortality. Even the wildest animals behave there in peaceful harmony with the Dharma. The calls of the birds carry the sound of Dharma and all natural sounds like water, wind, fire, forests reverberate as mantras.
The sky is filled with rainbows and vidhyadharas, dakas, dakinis, numberless as dust particles in sun rays. Celestial music, vajra songs, and melodious tunes of mantras resound, bringing inexpressible bliss to the mind.
The beings are not divided into those whom we see as friends and those whom we see as enemies, but all have the nature and appearance of dakas and dakinis. All are compagnions on the path, behaving in accordance of the Dharma.
In this Buddha Field we percieve beings as free from poisons of jealousy, pride and aggression and without judging some to be superior and others to be inferior, we generate the same loving kindness and equanimity to ALL.
If we hold in mind this visualized Buddha Field, our manner of percieving things will gradually change. We will percieve all as pure.
In brief we should percieve all forms as being display of Guru Rinpoche's body and thoughts as display of wisdom.
But we should not think that this is mental fabrication but that things have been so since the very beginning. (without need of own obscurations; judgements)
This pure state is something that naturally exists, but of which we are not aware.
The purpose of the meditation is thus to uncloud our mistaken perception of things and to realize, instead the innate purity of all phenomena.
