A Lamrim Prayer

Post by Drolma » Fri Apr 17, 2009 2:56 pm

From my two collections, vast as space, that I have amassed
From working with effort at this practice for a great length of time,
May I become the chief leading buddha for all those
Whose mind’s wisdom eye is blinded by ignorance.

Even if I do not reach this state, may I be held
In your loving compassion for all my lives, Manjushri.
May I find the best of complete graded paths of the teachings,
And may I please all the buddhas by practicing.

Using skillful means drawn by the strong force of compassion,
May I clear the darkness from the minds of all beings
With the points of the path as I have discerned them;
May I uphold Buddha’s teachings for a very long time.

With my heart going out with great compassion
In whatever direction the most precious teachings
Have not yet spread, or once spread have declined,
May I reveal this treasure of happiness and aid.

May the minds of those who wish for liberation be granted bounteous peace
And the buddhas’ deeds be nourished for a long time
By even this graded course to enlightenment completed
Due to the wondrous virtuous conduct of the buddhas and their children.

May all human and nonhuman beings who eliminate adversity
And make things conducive for practicing the excellent paths
Never be parted in any of their lives
From the purest path praised by the buddhas.

Whenever someone makes an effort to act
In accordance with the tenfold Mahayana virtuous practices,
May they always be assisted by the mighty ones,
And may oceans of prosperity spread everywhere.

I rejoice in the teaching and practice of the Gradual path, Lam-rim.
May it flourish in this world system for ages to come.
