The destination is the Guru's heart
In the practice called The Path to Heaven, we train in transferring our consciousness to the Dharmakaya, or Truth Body, at the heart of the Spiritual Guide, which is the ultimate Pure Land Land, or Heaven.
We visualise our Spiritual Guide as Buddha Tara above our crown and, through training in faith and meditation on the central channel, mix our consciousness with the Spiritual Guide's Truth Body.
During the practice, after we make requests, Guru Tara says::
"Come and abide in the Truth Body,
The blissful Pure Land here in my heart."
