A Message of Exhortation to the Nechung Oracle-Protector

by His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso


DE SHEK RIG NGAY YE SHEY GYU THRUL GAR

The magical illusory dance of the primordial cognition of the five families of Those Gone to Bliss,

POE KHAM KYONG DZAY TEN SRUNG DREK PAY TSO

the chief of haughty spirits who protect Tibet and Kham and guard the teachings,

T’HRIN LAY GYAL PO TRUL YUM LOEN POR CHAY

King of Enlightened Activity, together with your emanations, queen, and officers,

DAK CHAG DUNG WAY YANG KYII NYER KUEL NA

as we, with a melody of longing, exhort you with our full power,

NGOEN TSE GYAL WANG PAYMA KA RA DANG

in previous times, the Powerful Conqueror Padmakara,

PAY KAR CHHANG WA RIM PAY KA GOE SHING

and the Holder of the White Lotus gradually gave you secret commands,

DA KAY DAM TS’HIK NYEN PO RAB DROK PA

and proclaimed strict sacred commitments that are hard to contravene:

MA YEL MA YEL DOR JEY DAM TSIK GONG

do not forget! Do not forget! Consider your vajra commitments!

DAK CHAG MONG DANG CHHAK DANG CHHOK LHUNG GII

Through our foolishness, attachment, hatred, and sectarianism,

LAYN DRAY MA SRUNG CHI DOEN RAY SU BOR

we have not guarded karmic causality, have neglected the common good,

DAM TSIK GEL SOK SAM JOR NONG PA KUNG

have gone against our sacred commitments, and so on, and our thoughts and deeds are all faulty:

NYING NAY CHHAG SHING DOM NA ZOE DZOE LA

from the heart, we confess this, and taking it into account, please be forbearant:

TEN DANG TEN DZIN KYE DRO’I DE KYI DANG

increase the Teachings, the Holders of the Teachings, the happiness of living beings,

TEN DZIN GYA TSO’I KU TSE DZAY THRIN PEL

and the life-span and good works of the ocean of Holders of the Teachings!

GANG JONG GUE PA’I NYER TSE NYUR ZHI NAY

Quickly pacify this intense time of decrepitude in the Land of Snows,

CHHOE SRI RANG WANG GA TOEN DRUB SHIK KYE

and accomplish the celebration of spiritual and political autonomy! Pay heed!

DOR NA TEN SRUNG THU WO KHYOE NYI LA

In brief, to you yourself, the Sorceror Who Guards the Teachings,

NYING NAY KUEL ZHING DOE DON NYER TOE NA

from the depths of our hearts, we entreat you:  as we entrust our aims to you,

LOK TAR NYUR WAY NAM ZHI’I T’HRIN LAY KYII

by means of your lightning-swift four aspects of awakened activity,

SAM PAY RE WA DRUB LA MA YEL ZHIK

do not be idle towards the accomplishment of the hopes we hold in mind!

This was composed by the Great Fourteenth Successive Embodiment of the Supreme Victorious One.
