In this prayer to Guru Rinpoche, we request his help in removing all obstacles, so that favorable conditions can manifest. With this practice we are able to remove our obstacles, and benefit those who have asked for our help and made offerings with this purpose. It not only helps to remove obstacles to our own activities, but by dedicating for others,  we can extend the benefit to all sentient beings.
