Renunciation and devotion need to be heart-felt and do not refer to pointless lip service. Such a misled individual is only arrogant and proud, obstacles that give rise to a long chain of disturbing emotions ignorance, desire, anger, miserliness, jealousy, and so forth. Guru Buddha Amitabha, please hear us. The above also applies to generosity, the reason this topic is emphasized again and again in the teachings and needs to be understood and cultivated.

Inspire us so natural knowing wakens deep within us. A Buddha is a realized being who ascertains the totality of conditioned and ultimate reality. It never changes, it is stable, it stays within you. Bless us that we take the Dharma deep to heart. A Buddha, however, has eliminated all veils of disturbing emotions and sees the true nature, the reason he is a Buddha. But, then, how does confusion arise?


Inspire us to try to soften up our rigid hearts. Inspire us to make this life be truly meaningful. Every individual accumulates causes and conditions through their own activities of body, speech, and mind, which bring on birth in a respective realm and environment. Bless us that whatever we do is in harmony with the Dharma. This is why we pray to our Lama to bless us so that we develop true devotion and have the pure aspiration to achieve enlightenment.

We are ignorant of karmic connections, which follow us from one life to the next and which interdependence irrevocably entails. Help dual thoughts melt away, beyond rising, And to attain our seat of self-knowing.

Every living being has personal karma and consequently experiences the ripening of causes he himself has created. When we talk about emptiness, it is very theoretical. Some people seem to encounter problems throughout their entire life, while others never have accidents, hardly ever get sick, and the like.

Look from samsara and nirvana in sameness. Inspire us to use the remedies with steadfastness. This is really what a Lamaor Guru in Sanskrit, is. Their minds are controlled afat disturbing emotions, they only think of themselves, and remain inconsiderate of others.


Please bless me now quickly. The slightest praise aar blame can cause us so much joy or sorrow. I have seen disrespect arise so often and therefore wish to underline this point. It is important to know that the root guru is the one who enables the kongteul to see the nature of the mind.

Therefore one practices sincerely and fervently during life. One runs after thoughts and tries to possess them, one attempts to describe the mind with words and expressions, and gets stuck on ideas and beliefs; this is what brings forth real confusion! So, can space be used as a metaphor for emptiness? When it comes to accomplishing the great goal of liberation, konttrul are overcome by laziness And return empty-handed from a land filled with jewels.

Such an individual wanders from one life to the next without knowing where he came from or where he is going.
