Any shambhala people on here?

Post by Fortyeightvows » Wed Jul 22, 2015 6:25 am

I would like very much if someone could help me the shambhala translation of the seven line prayer to padmasambavha.
I used to know it but not anymore and I always liked shambhala's translation.
It's like:
In the northwest land of oddiyana, you have attained supreme wonderous siddhis, you are renowned as pad malaria surrounded by your retinue of dakinis.....

Pad malaria? Surely not...

You can find the Shambhala/Nalanda translation attached to this youtube video, an unusual setting of the Tibetan text somewhat in the style of the Anglican choral tradition:

Sorry that was auto corrected from padmakara...
Thanks a lot for that.
I really liked the video, I have always thought that shambhala was the only place to hear English chanting that sounds good and the tune the use in their centers works for many prayers. The video reminded me a bit of the throat chanting used by some Tibetan monks.

There was one more shambhala prayer that I was looking for it's the 'confession which brings reconciliation'....
