If you want to know your past life, look into your present condition; if you want to know your future life, look at your present actions.
I am present in front of anyone who has faith in me, just as the moon casts its reflection, effortlessly, in any vessel filled with water.
The eagle that is flying high in the sky should not forget that it should come down one day to see its shadow. [Essence of Karmic causes and effects]
Empty cognizance of one taste, suffused with knowing, is your unmistaken nature, the uncontrived original state. when not altering what is, allow it to be as it is, and the awakened state is right now spontaneously present.
On the northwest border of the land of Orgyen,
Arisen in a lotus flower’s heart,
With wondrous siddhi perfectly endowed,
And celebrated as the Lotus Born,
You are encircled by a throng of dakinis (yoginis).
We follow in your footsteps practicing.
Come, we pray, and grant your blessings.
As soon as one’s mind is known to be of the Wisdom of the Voidness, concepts like good and evil karma cease to exist. Seek, therefore, thine own Wisdom within thee. It is the Vast Deep.
When the degenerate age of this aeon arrives,
people are their own deceivers, their own bad counsel,
the makers of their own stupidity, lying to and fooling themselves.
How sad that these people have human forms but possess no more sense than an ox!
Now when the bardo of dying dawns upon me,
I will abandon all grasping, yearning, and attachment,
Enter undistracted into clear awareness of the teaching,
And eject my consciousness into the space of unborn Rigpa (primordial nondual awareness);
As I leave this compound body of flesh and blood
I will know it to be a transitory illusion.
Although my view is higher than the sky, My respect for the cause and effect of actions is as fine as grains of flour.
For anyone, man or woman, who has faith in me, I, the Lotus Born, have never departed — I sleep on their threshold.
Seeing me, all the buddhas are seen,
Accomplishing my practice, the practice of all the buddhas is accomplished,
For I am the embodiment of all the sugatas (fully enlightened beings).
[The Secret Guide to Accomplishing the Guru]
Unstained by objective clinging,
Unspoilt by the grasping mind,
Sustaining the naked and empty awareness
Is the wisdom mind of all the buddhas!
Do not investigate phenomena: investigate the mind.
If you investigate the mind, you’ll know the one thing which resolves all.
If you don’t investigate the mind, you can know everything but be forever stuck on one.
May I recognize all the manifestations
that appear to me in the bardo (intermediate state)
as being my own projections;
emanations of my own mind.
When the bardo of the moment of death appears
may I abandon attachments and mental fixations,
and engage without distraction in the
path which the instructions make clear.
Mind projected into the sphere of uncreated space,
separated from body, from flesh and blood,
I will know that which is impermanence and illusion.
When the moment is upon me
May I not be frightened
By the collection of peaceful and wrathful aspects:
Emanations of my own mind.
When I am in the bardo of birth till death,
May I waste no time;
Abandoning laziness, may I engage without distraction
In the study, assimilation of,
And meditation on the teachings,
May I practice, integrating on the path
Appearance and mind.
Without thinking that death will come,
I am absorbed in plans for the future.
After having done the many and futile activities of this life
I will leave utterly empty-handed
What a blunder;
as I will certainly need an understanding of the excellent Dharma (proper conduct).
So why not practice now?
Guru Rinpoche, Buddha of the three times,
Lord of all siddhis who is the one of great bliss,
Dispeller of all obstacles, wrathful tamer of Mara (demon),
We supplicate you; please grant your blessings.
Grant your blessings that outer, inner
and secret obstacles be pacified
And that our intentions be spontaneously accomplished.
Bodhisattva Padmasambhava: Guru Rinpoche
Boddhisattva Padmasambhava came from Kashmir, on the side of what is known as Pakistan, “close to the border with Afghanistan and Tajikistan. More precisely, his homeland is often cited as Swat Valley, an area called Udyan.” In 747 A.D., he went to Tibet upon the invitation of King This-srong-detsan and started teaching Tantric Buddhism. According to the accounts of Christopher Beckwith, a western historian:
One may also conclude that a major reason for so many Indian Buddhist sages coming to Central Tibet from Kashmir, and notably, the famous Padmasambhava from Udyana, was the simple fact that Tibet then ruled much of this region.
The name of Padmasambhava, literally means “born of the lotus flower.” This means to be born fully illuminated.
Boddhisattva Padmasambhava has been a Great Teacher for aeons and aeons of time. Under his direct and indirect tutelage are also Taoist immortals and yogis, the siddhas and mahasiddhas in India, and other great spiritual teachers from other traditions.
Invocation of Guru Rinpoche
HUM! In the northwest of Uddiyana,
On the centre of a lotus
Was found supreme, wondrous attainment.
One Renowned as “Lotus-born”
Encircled by vast retinues of dakinis:
Be with us in blessing and inspiration so that
following you, we may achieve [awakening.]
GURU PADMA SIDDHI HUM!
