The Melody of Deathless Accomplishment: A Prayer for the Exalted Feet of the Gurus to Remain Firm
by Jamgon Ju Mipham Rinpoche
HRIH: NANG SRID NAM DAG LHA YI KYIL KHOR DU
HRIH: In the mandala of the deity of utterly pure appearances and possibilities,
GO SUM DOR JE MIN CHING DROEL DZAY PAY
is the one who ripens the three doors into vajra, and activates liberation,
RIG KUEN KHYAB DAG GYUE KYI TOEN PA PO
the lord pervading all buddha-families, the teacher of the lineage:
DOR JE GYAL POR TAG TU ZHAB TEN SOL
Vajra King, I constantly pray that your exalted feet remain firm.
DOR JEY LUE LA ZHOM MEY SANG SUM GYI
You are one who vividly issues forth from your vajra body
DE CHHEN KYIL KHOR NGOEN DU JIN PA PO
the mandala of the great bliss of your invincible three secrets.
DOR JE LUNG GI DAG PO CHHE WAY CHHOG
Lord of Vajra Inner Wind, you are the supreme amongst supreme:
DOR JE LOB POEN KAL GYAR SHAB TEN SOL
Vajra Master, I pray that your exalted feet remain firm for a hundred aeons.
RANG RIG GYUR MEY DE CHHEN PO’I YING
Your own natural awareness is the basic space of unchanging supreme bliss.
TSOL MEY LAM NAY NGOEN SUM SEL DZAY PAY
From the path of non-contrivance, you enact the clarifying of direct perception,
DZOG PAY MAN NGAG ZAB MO NYER DZIN PAY
and you hold fast to the profound pith instructions of completeness:
PAL DEN LA MA SRI THAR ZHAB TEN SOL
Resplendent Guru, who brought conditioned existence to finality, I pray that your exalted feet remain firm.
GYUE SUM LA MAY ZHAL KYIN RIN PO CHHE
Precious Regent of the Gurus of the Three Lineages,
DUE SUM TAG PAR DOR JEY KUR ZHENG NAY
through your arising from the Vajrakaya, perpetual throughout the Three Times,
GYUE SUM CHHOE KYI GYAL TS’HEN CHEN PO GANG
may the great victory banner of the Dharma of the Three Lineages
SA SUM KHYAB PAR TAG TU DRENG GYUR CHIG
wave eternally, pervading the Three Planes!
Thus, in the Earth Mouse year, on the fifth day of the third month, Jampel Gyeypay Dorje (Mipham Rinpoche), in the manner of writing down whatever arises, composed this. Through this, for the Holders of the Teachings, who are suffused with benefit, by means of merely praying with these words, may the dependent arising for their lotus feet to remain
firm for an ocean of aeons arise, and may bountiful virtue and goodness increase!
