The Prayer to the Three Great Stupas of Nepal
by Dudjom Rinpoche, Jikdrel Yeshe Dorje
At the summit of Ox Horn Mountain in Nepal, a place of intense accomplishment,
The blessings and relics of the past Victorious Ones manifested:
To the amazing Self-Arisen Stupa
Renowned as Swayambunath [P’akpa Shingkün], I pray.
When Shakyamuni was the prince Heartfelt Courage,
He gave his own body to a hungry tigress;
At that site, the relics of great enlightened conduct manifested:
To the Stupa of Great Enlightenment, I pray.
Jadzima’s four builder sons maintained their karmic connection,
And in accordance with their altruistic aspiration, embraced the disciples of the Snowy Land;
To the Stupa Which Liberates Upon Sight known as Jarungkhashor,
Which completely fulfills all wishes, I pray.
Through the merit of prostrating, offering, and circumambulating with devotion
The Three Great Stupas which are meaningful for all those connected to them,
May the negative karma, misdeeds, and obscurations of myself and others be fully purified,
And may we quickly attain the excellent fruition of total liberation and enlightenment!
And thus, at the request of my own disciple, the diligent practitioner Rikzang Dorje, I, the Shakya upasaka Jikdrel Yeshe Dorje, wrote this before these supreme supports while generating bodhichitta.
This Prayer to the Three Great Stupas of Nepal was prepared and printed by Khenpo Shedup Tenzin at the Continuation of the Buddhist Teachings Publishing House of Shri Guatam Buddha Vihara, so that all faithful ones may recite it.
