Extract, Immaculate Confession Tantra, recited by Patrul Rinpoche

Post by kirtu » Mon Oct 29, 2018 2:14 pm

Verses of Confession from the final, 16th chapter of the Immaculate Confession Tantra, from lotsawahouse.org

I'm posting this because it was mentioned in Ricard that Patrul Rinpoche recited the Immaculate Confession Tantra just before passing away.
༈ དུས་གསུམ་བདེ་གཤེགས་རྒྱལ་བ་འཁོར་དང་བཅས། །

dü sum dé shek gyalwa khor dang ché

Victorious sugatas of past, present and future, together with your retinues,

རྡོ་རྗེ་དམ་ཅན་མ་ལུས་དགོངས་སུ་གསོལ། །

dorjé damchen ma lü gong su sol

And all you protectors bound by your vajra oath, turn your attention towards us!

དང་པོ་བྱང་ཆུབ་མཆོག་ཏུ་སེམས་བསྐྱེད་དེ། །

dang por changchub chok tu sem kyé dé

First we arouse bodhicitta and set our minds upon supreme awakening.

སྒྲུབ་པའི་རིག་འཛིན་བྱང་ཆུབ་གོ་འཕང་དུ། །

drubpé rigdzin changchub go pang du

Then, to reach the enlightened stage of an accomplished vidyādhara,

སྐུ་གསུང་ཐུགས་ཀྱི་རྡོ་རྗེ་བསྒྲུབ་པའི་ཕྱིར། །

ku sung tuk kyi dorjé drubpé chir

And achieve the vajra body, speech and mind,

ཡི་དམ་ལྷ་དང་རྡོ་རྗེ་སློབ་དཔོན་དང་། །

yidam lha dang dorjé lobpön dang

We bring to mind each category of samaya commitment

གསང་བའི་དམ་ཚིག་གྲངས་སུ་མནོས་པ་ལ། །

sangwé damtsik drang su nöpa la

To the yidam deity and the vajra master, together with all the secret commitments,

དམ་བཅའ་བཀའ་ལས་འདའ་བར་མི་བགྱི་སྟེ། །

damcha ka lé dawar mi gyi té

And make a pledge never to transgress the commands,
....
Kirt's Tibetan Translation Notes

"Even if you practice only for an hour a day with faith and inspiration, good qualities will steadily increase. Regular practice makes it easy to transform your mind. From seeing only relative truth, you will eventually reach a profound certainty in the meaning of absolute truth."
Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche.

"Only you can make your mind beautiful."
HH Chetsang Rinpoche

Thanks Kirt
Kye ma!
The river of continuity is marked by impermanence.
Ceaseless flowing of appearance.
Beautiful and repulsive.
The dance of life and death is a display of the vast expanse.
With gratitude the watcher and the watched pass through the barrier of duality.

A few years ago, Gyatrul Rinpoche's vision of creating hand-held prayer wheels with the Immaculate Confession Tantra inside was realized. I think Vimala may have a few left. It makes a great enhancement to the 4 powers part of Vajrasattva practice.
