The Prayer of the Intermediate State
By: Je Kurzhog Pa
༄༅།། བར་དོའ་+ོན་ལམ་རནི ་ཆེན་2ེང་བ་ཞེས་་བ་བགས།



A OM HUNG


In the intermediate state that is this life the present moment,
One does not realize one's own mind and is distracted by deluded activities,
Does not remember impermanence and death,
Pursues only the goals of this life and is bound by the suffering of birth, old age, sickness and death.
When this present illusory body suddenly meets its final illness,
May self-liberate all attachment to objects of matter and mind.
O Master, from your compassion, bless me.
Bless me that I may cut the illusory visions of the bardo.
Bless me that I may reconnect the mother voidness and the son awareness.


Thereafter, in the intermediate state near death,
Though surrounded by loved ones and relatives,
One journeys to the other dimension alone.
There is no way to prolong life even for a moment.
When the four elements of the mechanism that is this body dissolve,
May l naturally liberate duality and attachment.
O Master, from your compassion, bless me.
Bless me that I may cut the illusory visions of the bardo.
Bless me that I may reconnect the mother voidness and the son awareness


When the energy of the earth dissolves in the water,
One experiences the failing collapse of the body.
Visions of smoky movement and mirage arise.
When the yellow light that is one's own suddenly appears,
May I recognize it as the divine body of *Selwa Rangjung. (Self-Originated Clarity)
O Master, from your compassion, bless me.
Bless me that I may cut the illusory visions of the bardo.
Bless me that I may reconnect the mother voidness and the son awareness.


When the energy of water dissolves in the fire,
The body pales and one is thirsty with a dry tongue
And there are visions of flooding water.
When the purity of the water arises as the blue light,
May I realize it as the divine body of "Gawa Dondrup". (Joyful Accomplishment)
O Master, from your compassion, bless me.
Bless me that I may cut the illusory visions of the bardo.
Bless me that I may reconnect the mother voidness and the son awareness.


When the energy of fire dissolves in the wind
The body grows cold and the channels cannot be sustained.
One experiences visions like fireflies.
When the red light of one's self arises,
May realize it as the divinity Jedrak Ngomé. ("Thing-less and Without Division)
O Master, from your compassion, bless me.
Bless me that I may cut the illusory visions of the bardo.
Bless me that I may reconnect the mother voidness and the son awareness.
When the wind energy dissolves into consciousness,
The breath stops, the eyes roll upward,
When the consciousness dissolves into the base of all,
Internal sense organs and their external objects cease.
Then there is a vision like a cloudless sky.


When the six consciousnesses and their six objects dissolve in the heart
And the darkness arises and the rain of blood pools in the lake of blood
And the great sound arises and the great light arises,
May I realize all my visions as illusion.
May l become realized in the self-arising innate awareness.
O Master, from your compassion, bless me.


When consciousness remains as an orphan, with no support,
And the vision of the fearful lord of death in the other dimension arises,
And the delusory visions of sound, light, and rays arise,
Bless me that I may liberate in the intermediate state
By realizing these as self-arising self- energy.
O Master, from your compassion, bless me.
Bless me that I may cut the illusory visions of the bardo.
Bless me that I may reconnect the mother voidness and the son awareness.


Bless me that I may recognize all vision as illusion.
Bless me that I may cut the possibility of birth in the lower realms.
Bless me that I may realize the single essence of the three times.
Bless me that may obtain the buddhahood of the three kayas.
Bless me that may achieve the five wisdoms.
Bless me that I am able to help countless sentient beings.
O Master, from your compassion, bless me.
The best meditation is no meditation
