‘Dharmakaya Kuntuzangpo’: A Supplication to Padmasambhava
Revealed by Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa
EMAHO! How marvelous!
The Dharmakaya, Kuntuzangpo; the Buddha of the Sixth Family, Vajradhara,
The Teacher, Vajrasattva; the Transcendent and Accomplished King of the Shakyas,
The Lord Protector, Amitayus; and Avalokiteshvara:
I supplicate Padma, inseparable from them all.
The essence of your exalted form is Manjushri Yamantaka,
The essence of your noble speech is the incredibly powerful Hayagriva,
The essence of your awakened mind is Yangdak Heruka:
I supplicate Padma, the Wish-Fulfilling Gem.
The embodiment of the overwhelming brilliance of your positive qualities is Chhe Chhok Heruka,
The embodiment of your enlightened activity is the exalted form of Vajrakumara,
As Ngondzok Gyalpo, you are the chief of the mamos and dakinis:
I supplicate the great and resplendent T’ho T’hreng Tsal.
In the basic space of your exalted form is the dimension of the peaceful and wrathful deities’ magical display,
The melodious sound of your noble speech is suffused with the Twelve Branches of the Buddha’s Teachings,
The enlightened intent of your awakened mind is unobstructed and penetrating, permeating everything:
I supplicate the Lord Chief of the Dakinis.
You prophesied the coming of your emanation-regents, concealed terma as representatives of your noble speech,
Directed the enlightened intent of your awakened mind towards your children with fortunate karma,
And left your legacy with the entire Tibetan nation:
I supplicate the Gracious Nirmanakaya.
I remember your kindness, Guru Rinpoche,
I pray that you honor your sacred commitment to guide us with your enlightened intent;
In these bad times, there is no hope for us other than you:
Please look upon us with compassion, Nirmanakaya of Orgyen.
Turn back the disturbances and strife of these dark times with your force, skill, and power,
Please confer blessings, pristine wakefulness, and unparalleled empowerments,
Vitalize the dynamic strength of our meditative experience and realization,
Suffuse us totally with the power and skill to benefit the Teachings and beings,
And help bring us to the accomplishment of buddhahood in a single lifetime!
