The One-Page Prayer: A Prayer to Khunu Lama Rinpoche Composed by Khunu Lama Rinpoche Himself

The One-Page Prayer:

A Prayer to Khunu Lama Rinpoche

Composed by Khunu Lama Rinpoche Himself

 

THUP-TEN DRI-MA-MEY-PA DÜ-TSI’I PEL

O Splendor of the ambrosial nectar of the Sage’s stainless Teachings,

LEK-PAR TAM-PA DAM-PA DU MAY ZHAP

At the feet of many well-versed sublime beings,

GO SUM GÜ-PA TSUK-GI-GYEN ZHIN TEN

With respect of the three doors that treated them like a crown ornament, you sought guidance:

TEN-DZIN GYEL-TS’HEN ZHAP LA SÖL-WA DEP

At the feet of Tenzin Gyeltsen, I pray.

 

DRA DANG TS’HAY-MA LA-SOK RIK-PAY-NAY

O Splendor of studying the fields of knowledge such as grammar and logic,

LAP-SUM SEL-WAR TÖN-PA DAM-PAY ZHUNG

The holy texts which clearly teach the three trainings,

RIK-PA-DZIN-PAY DE-NÖ T’HÖ-PAY PEL

And the scriptural collection of the Vidyādharas:

TEN-DZIN GYEL-TS’HEN ZHAP LA SÖL-WA DEP

At the feet of Tenzin Gyeltsen, I pray.

 

MAY-JUNG CHHAK DZOK U-MA LAM-DRAY DANG

Because you continually applied with devotion the vital essence of the instructions

ZHI-JEY DÜ-KHOR LA-SOK DAM-PAY CHÜ

Such as the amazing Mahāmudrā, Mahāsandhi, Mādhyamaka, Lamdray, Zhijey, and Kālachakra,

TAK-JOR GÜ-PAY LO-DRÖ YÖL-GOR KHYIL

Your wisdom-vessel was filled:

TEN-DZIN GYEL-TS’HEN ZHAP LA SÖL-WA DEP

At the feet of Tenzin Gyeltsen, I pray.

 

This one-page prayer is found in the biography of Khunu Rinpoche called ‘Stairway to Liberation’ (thar pa’i them skas) as a supplement on page 99.
