Precious Guru, essence of the buddhas of the three times, please think of me. %

Please bless my mindstream. %

Please grant your blessings that my mind may turn towards the Dharma. %

Please grant your blessings that I may follow the path of Dharma. %

Please grant your blessings that the path my clarify confusion. %

Please bestow your blessings that confused appearances may dawn as primordial wakefulness. %

First, the instruction on the difficulty of finding the freedoms and advantages: %

Kyema! Among the six classes of beings, the freedoms and advantages are difficult to find. %

Among those who have attained the human body, those who have met the Dharma are even harder to find. %

With this precious gem, so difficult to find, %

I will abandon all distraction , and accomplish its very essence! %

Second, the instruction on meditating on death and impermanence: %

The illusory body we are born with is by nature subject to death. %

The passing of a person’s life is like a river crashing down a steep mountain. %

There is no certainty as to which timely or untimely conditions will become the cause of death. %

Therefore, I will cultivate concentration and meditation right now! %

Third, going for Refuge in the Three Jewels and their Great Compassion: %

Due to the dangerous abyss of the terrifying lower realms, %

I take refuge in the sacred Three Jewels as the most excellent support %,

Together with all sentient beings pervading the limits of space, who have been my mothers; %

O Supreme Three Jewels, hold us with your love, and out of your great compassion, do not abandon us! %

Fourth, the pledge to generate the Mahayana Mind: %

The essential Dharma of the swift path, the unsurpassable Mahayana, %

Is meditating on bodhichitta, through cherishing others more than oneself. %

In order to realize it’s relative and ultimate aspects, %

From today onwards, I pray that I may rely on bodhichitta with perseverance! %

Fifth, the meditation-recitation on Vajrasattva: %

Whatever disturbing emotions and obscurations that I am aware of, %

***

At the very tip of the crown of my head: E MA HO! %

In his heart-center is a mantra-mala of the Hundred-Syllable Mantra from which flows the purifying nectar of deathlessness. %

***

OM VAJRA SATTVA SAMAYA MANUPALAYA VAJRA SATTVA TVENOPA TISHTHA DRIDHO ME BHAVA SUTO KAYO ME BHAVA SUPO KAYA ME BHAVA ANURAKTO ME BHAVA SARVA SIDDHI MEM PRAYACH CHA SARVA KARMA SUTSAME CHIITTAM SHREYAM KURU HUNG HA HA HA HA HO BHAGAVAN SARVA TATHAGATA VAJRA MA ME MUNTZA VAJRA BHAVA MAHA SAMAYA SATTVA AH %

I acknowledge and confess all damaged and broken precepts and commitments of body, speech, and mind. %

I pray that the entire collection of my negative actions, obscurations, faults, transgressions, and defilements may be cleansed and purified. %

Deity, as you descend to my heart-center through my central channel, %

I confront the nonduality of myself and deity. %

*** Vajrasattva Heruka Mantra

In the sky is myself as Vajrasattva %

My Root Guru arises in the exalted form of Padmasambhava, %

surrounded by a retinue of all the buddhas of the ten directions without exception: %

Gloriously manifesting for the ripening and liberation of myself and others. %

Sixth, the recitation of the mantra of the perfectly gathered Mandala Offering: %

HRIH: This precious mandala, arranged with my body and mind, %

I offer to the Protector Three Jewels and the gurus of the spoken transmission. %

By accepting this, please infuse my mindstream with blessings! %

May there be enjoyment within the realms of the Three Kayas! %

Seventh, Guru Yoga: %

In the sky before me, seated above **** of skin, amidst a host of flames %

is the exalted form of my Root Guru, who is the embodiment of all the buddhas. %

He is wearing a yogi’s tiger skin lower garment and is adorned with six born ornaments. %

The liberating sound of the damaru in his right hand reverberates throughout space. %

He powerfully controls the Three Roots, dakas, and dakinis. %

A skullcup in his left hand, he feeds me the nectar of deathlessness. %

By means of his great compassion, the force and skill of his powerful and exalted form liberates my mindstream, %

And I meditate within with Root Guru’s level of attainment. %

The Prayer to the Successive Lineage of Those Who Accomplished the Three Kayas: %

Recite this on the tenth day of the lunar month, in the early part of the morning: %

OM AH HUNG%
