GURU RINPOCHE LONG LIFE EMPOWERMENT AND PRACTICE:

All sentient beings have as the ground of their being, the sugatagarbha, due to which they can attain enlightenment. If there were no potential for enlightenment, there would not really be such a special point made about living a longer life.

If you are to attain enlightenment, then you require a physical form. It is said that the form of a human being is the best form among the six classes of beings. The ‘boat’ of the human body is very good for crossing the ‘river’ of suffering. This is an important point. But we will not find this boat again and again. So now that we have it, we should not waste our time in laziness and sleep.

Guru Rinpoche said:

As the first of all activities,

The vidyadhara should achieve longevity!

Of all activities, the first should be long-life practice.

If life is long, it can be virtuous,

And the purpose of this life and the next can be achieved.

So it is good to live a long life because we can fully accomplish the purpose of this and future lives.

It is precisely because of this need for Long Life that Choeze Kuchen Rinpoche decides to bestow on us disciples the Guru Rinpoche's most profound Long Life Empowerment for blessing and obstacle clearance. This is immediately followed by teachings on its actual practice.
