Prayer to the Teacher

Guru Brahma, Guru Vishnu, Guru Devo Maheshwara;
Guru Sakshat Parabrahma Tsmai Shri Guruve Namaha

(The guru is like Lord Brahma as he fosters knowledge within us, Lord Vishnu as he turns the
knowledge in our mind to the right path, Lord Shiva as he destroys the
wrong concepts that come with knowledge, while  helping us to the path
of enlightenment. Thus the teacher is like our ultimate God, salutations
to my guru)

Om akhanda mandalakaram vyaptam yena characharam
Tatpadam darshitam yena tasmai shree guruve namaha

He whose presence occupies the infinite universe, salutations to my guru for revealing this truth.

Agyana timirandhashya gyananjana shalakaya
Chakshurunmilitam yena tasmai shri guruve namaha.

He removes the dark blindness of ignorance, with the light of knowledge, Salutation to the Guru. Who has opened my eyes.

Prayer to Nyala Pema Duddul

Homage to the Guru!

Just like all the great siddhas and buddhas of the past,

You underwent all manner of hardship,

And then, from the Jewel Peak of Lhangdrak,

Brought down a rain of Dharma teachings on Mahamudra, Dzogpachenpo and the Great Middle Way—

To you, the ‘stone-eating’ yogin, I pray!

Grant your blessings so that, like you, I may realize natural simplicity, beyond concepts!

Grant your blessings so that I may turn away from attachment to samsara!

Grant your blessings so that the tight knot of my ego-clinging may be
released!

Grant your blessings so that I may be freed from all my dualistic fixations!

Grant your blessings so that I may break through this mass of attachment and aversion!

Grant your blessings so that the five poisons may be purified naturally in their
own state!

Grant your blessings so that I may experience happiness and suffering as being of a single taste!

Grant your blessings so that I may fully understand death and impermanence!

Grant your blessings so that I may recognize all the beings of the six realms
as my own parents!

Grant your blessings so that the tight knot of my miserliness may be loosened!

Grant your blessings so that I may see the illusory nature of food and possessions!

Grant your blessings so that I may keep to pleasant mountain retreats!

Grant your blessings so that all my perceptions may dawn as the master!

Grant your blessings so that my cave may appear as the blissful Sukhavati!

Grant your blessings so that I may perfect the seven ways of remaining
unaltered!

Grant your blessings so that there may be no tightness or looseness in my view!

Grant your blessings so that my meditation may arise continuously!

Grant your blessings so that my action is beyond accepting and rejecting!

Grant your blessings so that I have no fears or hopes for the result!

Grant your blessings so that I reach the very limit of the four levels of
confidence!
