Method For releasing Life Chatral Rinpoche Part 2

 

A METHOD FOR FREEING LIVES  continued…

 

Intelligence and discerning insight,

Whatever splendor and wealth of samsara and nirvana

there may be,

May their auspiciousness be spontaneously present.

May merit increase and flourish like the lofty king of mountains,

May great fame spread throughout the sky,

May there be long life, good health and spontaneous benefit for others,

And may the auspiciousness of an ocean of eminent qualities be present.

 

May this place have peace and happiness morning and night,

May the midday as well be peaceful and happy,

May there be peace and happiness every day and night,

And may the auspiciousness of the Three Jewels be present.

 

Om yedharma hetu prabhava hetun teken tathagato

haya wadet tekeñchayo nirodha ewam vadi maha shramana svaha

 

Uttering this, make peace and goodness by strewing flowers. If you prefer, some other texts for longevity practice mention that one can “make the sun and moon marks on the forehead of those whose lives you have freed so that they will henceforth not be killed.” In this way, it is taught that drawing the design of the sun and moon with butter on their foreheads creates the auspicious coincidence for their life-span being equal to the sun and moon. It is also taught that giving a few of the choicest cattle with white marks the name “Lucky” (Tib. Tashi, Skt. Mangala), creates the auspicious coincidence for luck and good fortune.

 Do so accordingly.

 

Thus contemplate the four immeasurables. If you like, you can chant the names of the Buddhas and their particular dharani mantras. To repeat these many times will bring immense benefit, such as sowing the seed of liberation in the mind-stream of the animals.

 If you are unable to do that much, then say:

 

Transcendent Free Conqueror, Thus Gone, Foe Destroyer, Truly and Perfectly Awakened Buddha Boundless Light, I salute you.

 Transcendent Free Conqueror, Thus Gone, Foe Destroyer, Truly and Perfectly Awakened Buddha Unshakable, I salute you.

Transcendent Free Conqueror, Thus Gone, Foe Destroyer, Truly and Perfectly Awakened Buddha Jewel Crest, I salute you.

Transcendent Free Conqueror, Thus Gone, Foe Destroyer, Truly and Perfectly Awakened Buddha Renowned King of Splendor, I salute you.

Transcendent Free Conqueror, Thus Gone, Foe Destroyer, Truly and Perfectly Awakened Buddha Jewel, Moon and Lotus Adorned King of Knowledge, Brilliance and Eloquence, I salute you.

Transcendent Free Conqueror, Thus Gone, Foe Destroyer, Truly and Perfectly Awakened Buddha Flawless Pure Gold, Jewel Light, Master of Courageous Conduct, I salute you.

Transcendent Free Conqueror, Thus Gone, Foe Destroyer, Truly and Perfectly Awakened Buddha Sorrowless Eminent Splendor, I salute you.

 Transcendent Free Conqueror, Thus Gone, Foe Destroyer, Truly and Perfectly Awakened Buddha Dharma Expounding Melodious Ocean, I salute you.

 Transcendent Free Conqueror, Thus Gone, Foe Destroyer, Truly and Perfectly Awakened Buddha Dharma Ocean Higher Knowledge Displayed Through Eminent Insight, I salute you.

 Transcendent Free Conqueror, Thus Gone, Foe Destroyer, Truly and Perfectly Awakened Buddha Supreme Healer King of Lapis Light,

I salute you.

 

Then chant:

 

Om mani peme hung hrih, namo ratna trayaya, namo

bhagavate akshyobhyaya, tathagataya, arhate samyak sambuddhaya,

 

Tadyatha, om kamkani kamkani, rotsani rotsani, trotani trotani, trasani trasani,

pratihana pratihana, sarva karma parampara, nime sarva satva nañtsa soha,

 

Namo ratna trayaya, namah arya jñana sagara baitsana bhyuha rajaya,

Tathagataya, arhate samyak sambuddhaya,

 

Namah sarva tathagatebhya arhatabhya samyak sambuddhebhya,

Namah arya avalokiteshvaraya bodhisatvaya mahasatvaya mahakarunikaya,

 

Tadyata om dhara dhara dhiri dhiri dhuru dhuru itte bitte tsale tsale

 pratsale pratsale kusume kusuma bare ilimili tsiti dvala mapanaya soha

 

Repeat this with a clear and loud voice. Then, hold flowers in your hand and say

 

In this life may the benefactors, Along with their following accomplish their aims,

Be free of obstacles, have the best of luck, And fulfill their spiritual wishes.

 

In this way make dedication and aspirations. Then say:

 

By the blessings of the supreme Buddha, eminent and unexcelled,

The victorious sun of truth, May the harmful foes of maras and obstructors subside

So that the auspiciousness of constant splendor is present day and night.

 

By the blessings of the Dharma of the unconditioned nature, eminent and unexcelled,

The sacred Dharma’s nectar of truth,

May the painful foes of the five poisonous emotions subside,

So that the auspiciousness of constant splendor is present day and night.

 

By the blessings of the Sangha’s qualities, blazing in precious brilliance,

The truly beneficial deeds of the conqueror’s offspring,

May the flaws of misdeeds be removed and may goodness increase,

So that the auspiciousness of constant splendor is present day and night.

 

Having uttered these and other suitable verses of auspiciousness, say:

 

Enjoyment of the splendor of immortal life,

Resulting from this merit and wisdom.

By this virtue may all attain omniscience.

Having defeated the enemy, wrongdoing,

From the stormy waves of birth, old age, sickness, and death,

From the ocean of samsara, may I free all beings.

 

In all our lives, wherever we take rebirth,

May we never be separate from the Three Jewels.

May we always venerate them,

And receive their blessings.

 

May the precious mind of enlightenment

Arise in those it has not arisen.

Where it has arisen, may it not wane,

But increase further and further.

 

As the single source of benefit and well-being,

May the teachings remain for a long time,

And may the life-span of the people who uphold these teachings,

Be steadfast like the banner of victory.

 

May the world have peace and delightful years,

May crops be bountiful and cattle increase,

May the source of every peace and goodness be present,

And may all wishes be fulfilled.

 

In this very life as well

May all types of unfavorable conditions subside,

May we have long life, good health, and prosperity,

And attain enduring happiness.

 

 

In the sky before me is the Guru indivisible from the Transcendent Free Conqueror Buddha Boundless Light encircled by an ocean-like assembly of the precious objects of refuge, including the buddhas and bodhisattvas of the ten directions, and the devas and rishis accomplished in truthful speech. They are vividly present and their melodious voices utter auspicious wishes. The immense rain of flowers they shower down increases and extends further and further the life-span and merit, splendor and prosperity, wisdom and virtues, of myself and all sentient beings headed by the benefactor.

 

All those who are reborn as animals are presently freed from the fear of untimely death and live peacefully under the protection of the Three Jewels. Ultimately, when the seed of liberation ripens within their stream of being, they are invested with the fortune of quickly attaining enlightenment.

 

Then, while imagining this, say:

 

Like the mighty royal crest of the victory banner,

Sublime deity adorning these practitioners’ heads,

Bestowing upon them the supreme accomplishment,

Glorious and eminent guru, may your auspiciousness be present.

 

Unexcelled teacher, precious Buddha,

Unexcelled protector, precious sacred Dharma,

Unexcelled guide, precious Sangha;

May the auspiciousness of the refuge objects, the Three Jewels, be present.

 

Boundless Life, the primary guide of this world,

Who overcomes all types of untimely death,

Protector of all unprotected and suffering beings,

May the auspiciousness of Buddha Amitayus be present.

 

After you have chanted whatever verses of auspiciousness you know, then say:

 

The strength of giving truly exalts the Buddha.

The Lion of Men has realized the strength of giving.

When entering the city of compassion,

May the life-span of perfect giving also increase.

 

The strength of ethics truly exalts the Buddha.

The Lion of Men has realized the strength of ethics.

When entering the city of compassion,

May the life-span of perfect ethics also increase.

 

The strength of patience truly exalts the Buddha.

The Lion of Men has realized the strength of patience.

When entering the city of compassion,

May the life-span of perfect patience also increase.

 

The strength of perseverance truly exalts the Buddha.

The Lion of Men has realized the strength of perseverance.

When entering the city of compassion,

May the life-span of perfect perseverance also increase.

 

The strength of concentration truly exalts the Buddha.

The Lion of Men has realized the strength of concentration.

When entering the city of compassion,

 May the life-span of perfect concentration also increase.

 

The strength of insight truly exalts the Buddha.

The Lion of Men has realized the strength of insight.

When entering the city of compassion,

May the life-span of perfect insight also increase.

 

Om namo bhagavate, aparimita ayurjñana subinishcha

tatejo rajaya, tathagataya, arhate samyak sambuddhaya,

 

Tadyata, om punye punye mahapunye aparimita punye,

aparimita punye jñana sambharo pachite,

 

Om sarva samskara pari shuddha dharma tegagana

samudgate svabhava vishuddhe mahanaya parivare svaha.

 

Utter this as many times as you can while scattering flowers. Then say:

 

As implied by the virtuous roots of doing this,

may the virtuous roots gathered throughout the three times

make the Buddha’s teachings prosper and

bring forth immense virtuous  goodness in the world.  

May all sublime people upholding the Dharma live long

and steadfast and may their activities flourish.

 

May I and all sentient beings, headed by this benefactor,

have increased life-span and merit, splendor, prosperity, and wisdom.

 

May these animals too be freed from the fears of samsara and the lower realms, and soon attain the precious state of enlightenment.

 

Having formed these thoughts, with one-pointed resolve then say:

 

By this virtue may all beings Perfect the accumulations of merit and wisdom,

And may they attain the sacred two kayas
