Jetsun Drakpa Gyaltsen’s Tara Prayer

by Jetsun Drakpa Gyaltsen

Universally-Honored One, Victorious and Accomplished Conqueress, Possessor of Great Compassion,

 I pray that you will purify the two obscurations of myself and all limitless sentient beings,

and, through quickly consummating the two accumulations,

I pray that we may enact the attainment of perfect buddhahood.

For as long as I do not attain it, then in all lifetimes, as well,

through attaining the supreme happiness of gods and men,

 for the sake of accomplishing the state of omniscience,

I pray that you will swiftly pacify and obliterate

all obstacles, negative spirits, hindrances, epidemics, and so on,

 the various kinds of untimely death,

bad dreams and inauspicious omens,

 the eight fears and all other harm.

 May both mundane and supermundane

 auspicious good fortune, abundance, and prosperity increase,

 and may benefit bloom everywhere, without exception:

 I pray that this be spontaneously accomplished without effort.

 May I be diligent in my practice, may the Dharma spread,

and always, may I behold your supreme face of accomplishment.

 May I realize the meaning of emptiness, and may the precious mind of bodhichitta,  

like the waxing moon, increase and thrive!

 

 This is was the noble speech of Jetsun Drakpa Gyaltsen.
