Isabella's Lullaby

Post by The Mantra Mongoose » Mon Apr 20, 2020 11:23 pm

Lately I've been watching a lot of anime, and reading some manga. This one song from a anime/manga called "the promised neverland" really struck a cord with me(no pun intended). I find it to be just hauntingly beautiful, and i wanted to share it.

Hung! On the northwest border of the country Oḍḍiyāna,
On the pollen heart of a lotus flower,
The marvelous, supreme accomplishment has been attained.
You are renowned as the Lotus-Born,
Surrounded by a retinue of many Ḍākinīs.
Following you to be like you,
I beseech you to come and bless me.
Guru Padma Siddhi Hung -The Seven Line Prayer of Guru Rinpoche

this is a rough translation of what is being sung in the second have of the video that was translated by a commenter below the video. i found it wonderful:

My beloved child,
Sleeping in the birdcage of angels


A warm breeze awaits you
In the small home from our dreams


You wander, lost,
Chasing a faintly glimmering light


Follow that bird in the distance
And toward the promised paradise, fly


Even as night falls and the sky grows dark, go forth
Hold onto the light with your sparkling eyes



Spread your wings towards the truth
And soar beyond a world created with lies


When your crumbling hope carries with it regret
And you are blinded by tears and can go no further,


My beloved child, remember my song
And return to my side
Hung! On the northwest border of the country Oḍḍiyāna,
On the pollen heart of a lotus flower,
The marvelous, supreme accomplishment has been attained.
You are renowned as the Lotus-Born,
Surrounded by a retinue of many Ḍākinīs.
Following you to be like you,
I beseech you to come and bless me.
