Accomplishing the Lama through the Seven Line Prayer:

A Special Teaching from the Lama Sangdü

 

The Terma Revelation of Guru Chöwang

Homage to the yidam deity!

 

Fortunate men and women of the future,

Sons and daughters of an enlightened family,

When you turn to me, the guru of Orgyen, for refuge,

Take yourself to an isolated place, and

Make deep feelings arise of melancholy at impermanence,

And disgust with samsara—this is vital.

 

Then rely on me completely, heart and soul.

Reflect how every kind of refuge, all your hopes,

Are all fulfilled and complete within me, the guru of Orgyen.

Whether in happiness or in sorrow,

Have total trust and confidence in me.

No need to make offerings or praise;

Set aside all accumulating;

Simply let devotion flood your body, speech and mind, and

Pray, pray with these seven lines:

 

HUNG

 

ORGYEN YUL GYI NUB JANG  TSAM

In the north-west of the land of Orgyen,

 

PEMA KESAR DONGPO  LA

In the heart of a lotus flower,

 

YATSEN CHOK GI NGÖ DRUP  NYÉ

Endowed with the most marvellous attainments,

 

PEMA  JUNG NÉ  SHYÉ SU DRAK

You are renowned as the Lotus-born,

 

KHOR DU KHANDRO MANGPÖ KOR

Surrounded by many hosts of dakinis.

 

KHYÉ KYI JÉ SU DAK DRUP KYI

Following in your footsteps

 

CHIN GYI LAP CHIR SHEK SU SOL

I pray to you: come and bless me with your grace!

 

GURU PEMA SIDDHI HUM

 

Pray in this way, over and over again.

Create a feeling of yearning and longing

So intense that tears spring from your eyes.

If the rapture of devotion overwhelms you,

Breathe out strongly, and then leave everything as it is.

 

Clear and awake, focused and undistracted, look within.

 

For children of mine who pray like this,

It goes without saying that they will have my protection,

For they will be the sons and daughters of the buddhas of past, present and future.

They will receive complete empowerment into the awareness of their own enlightened mind.

Their samadhi will be so powerful and stable, that wisdom will naturally blossom and expand.

 

This great blessing, which arises of its own accord,

Will dispel all the suffering that will ripen on you, or be experienced by others.

When your mind is transformed, others’ perceptions will simultaneously change,

You will accomplish enlightened activity,

And all noble qualities will be complete within you.

 

May the sons and daughters of my heart meet with this extraordinary skilful means, one which ripens and liberates into the dharmakaya realization of my enlightened being.

 

A practice with a uniquely powerful blessing, the seven line prayer is exceptionally profound;

so let this instruction be an extremely secret treasure of my enlightened mind.

May it meet with one who possesses a mind of wisdom, and is endowed with great compassion, called Chökyi Wangchuk.

 

 

It is said that one accumulates great merits by reading, copying and memorising Dharma texts

May I dedicate these merits to the relief from suffering from all sentient beings
