NAMO GURU %

At the time when the Maha-acharya Padmasambhava was departing for the southwestern country of cannibal demons, %
at Gungtang Pass, in the country of Mangyul (nothern Nepal), Yeshe Tsogyal made prostrations and circumambulations, %
and placing the crown of her head at the exalted feet of the Guru, she prayed in this way: %

MA HA GU RU’I JIN LAB KYIY %

Through the blessings of the Mahaguru, %

DAK KYANG TS’HE RAB T’HAM CHAY DU %

may I, in all my lifetimes, %

and simultaneously, may I actualize the Three Kayas. %

May all sentient beings who abide in the six classes of being be saved from the ocean of samsara and suffering, and swiftly, may they become manifestly complete buddhas! %

For people like ourselves, Padma Lingpa, in Lhodrak, from a boulder of medicine-stone that had the face of a lion, revealed this.
