A Yearning Supplication and Aspiration
to the Three Roots

Victorious Ones and Your Sons in the ten directions,
All assemblies of noble Shravakas and Pratyekabuddhas,
And everyone who practices the Dharma, I supplicate
you respectfully.
Regard me with compassion and grant your blessings.
Gurus of the three lineages, peaceful and wrathful yidam deities,
Dakas and Dakinis, Buddhas and Bodhisattvas,
Dharma Protectors and Samaya-holders, Rishis who have attained
true speech,
Lovingly bestow your blessings on this supplicating child.
Kyema Kyihu, a wretched one like me,
Has been tormented by unbearable karma and the kleshas for so long.
Stretch out your hands with great love and compassion
And guide me this very moment.
Although my nature is primordially enlightened,
Because of ignorance and confusion I have wandered
throughout existence.
I am desolate in this dream-like samsara.
Please be my refuge and protect me.
Please rescue me and countless sentient beings
From the endless ocean of samsara, so difficult to cross.
Take us across the sea of suffering
In the unsurpassable boat of wisdom.
The manifestations of tendencies - habits for so long,
And dualistic grasping to deluded experience, are more
imposing than Mount Sumeru.
Please demolish them this very moment
With the wisdom vajra of supreme liberation.
The darkness of ignorance, such a dense obscuration,
has lasted so long,
It is hard to fathom and its end is impossible to see.
With your wisdom light rays please clear away
This immense cover which obscures the luminous essence.
Whatever I do, it is but the cause of kleshas and suffering.
Letting my mind turn completely away
From the futile concerns of this world,
Please make me spend day and night in Dharma practice.
Incorrect thinking is like overlapping waves.
Various conceptualizations chase after the five sense objects.
Please pacify the eight collections, the tendencies and
the all-ground
Within Dharmadhatu.
Conceptual tendencies, the klesha-mind of the desire realm,
And habitual tendencies connected with the samsaric mind
Of the clarity of the form realm and the nonthought of
the formless,
Please purify all of them.
Having turned away from the pursuit of solitary peace -
The inferior attitude of practicing for the benefit of oneself,
Let me enter the path of the supreme outer, inner and
secret teachings
And enable me to act vastly for the benefit of others.
Completely purifying karma, the kleshas and tendencies
Of all beings who are on an inferior, perverted or mistaken path,
Please help everyone, without exception, to journey together
To the liberated citadel of the wishfulfilling mind-essence.
We have remained for so long, without beginning or end
In the ocean of obscurations, murky with emotions,
With no chance for emancipation by ourselves.
Please liberate us with your great compassion.
From the strong and intense emotions, so hard to endure,
From the pain of existence with so much suffering,
And from the level of carelessness, dependency and laziness
Please fully liberate us this very day.
May we fully realize that all futile phenomena
Are impermanent, unstable, a magical enticement for the mind.
Please enable us to spend day and night continously
With sincere renunciation and weariness.
Having attained awareness, super-knowledge and samadhi
In the delightful secluded phases of sacred mountain dwellings,
Please enable us to arrive, withtin this very lifetime,
At the celestial realm of great bliss, the spontaneous
accomplishment of the two benefits.
Exerting ourselves in practice, alone with perseverance,
May we not drift toward the concerns of this life for an instant.
Perfecting the siddhis in the footsteps of the forefathers,
May we always please our spiritual master.
Free from the flows of broken samayas,
And realizing unmistakenly the meaning of the view,
meditation, action and result,
Without wavering from the luminous state, day and night,
May we accomplish the twofold benefit for self and others.
Perfecting development and completion, the purity of
what appears and exists,
Let the ocean of dakinis samaya-holders gather like
cloud banks.
With the twofold siddhis descending on us like rain,
May we accomplish the four activities.
With pure perception and devotion arising without bias,
With uninterrupted love and compassion,
And with experience and realization - the virtues of
view and meditation - blazing forth,
May we impartially act for the welfare of beings.
Through this, our perfect devotion and merit,
May all beings be fully liberated together, without exception,
And journey within this very lifetime
To Samantabhadra's realm of spontaneously present great bliss.

May my happiness be experienced by all beings,
May the sufferings of living beings be transferred to me.
Untill samsara is emptied,
May I lead living beings.

Life is impermanent like autumn clouds,
youth is impermanent like the flowers of spring,
the body is impermanent like borrowed property;
the lord of death, like the shadow of the western mountain, will not delay.

Whoever towards me generates anger or faith
or whoever hurts, praises, or follows me,
may I lead them all swiftly to enlightenment.

High among the mountains the mind grows clear and expansive,
the perfect place to bring freshness when dull and to practice the generation stage.
Snowclad regions help make samadhi clear and awareness bright and lucid,
ideal for cultivating insight and where obstacles are few.

Through the union of bliss, clarity, and nonconceptuality
you will achieve clairvoyance, extraordinary powers of perception,
and boundless qualities,
and ultimately you will achieve the wish-fulfilling three kayas
and all the qualities of the victorious ones,
spontaneously bringing about your own and others' welfare.

The welfare of others cannot be accomplished
without the higher faculties of perception,
so strive diligently for your own well-being
while mentally considering the welfare of others.

Although sensory appearances do not exist, they manifest in all their variety. Although emptiness does not exist, it extends infinitely, reaching everywhere.

In the experience of yogins who do not perceive things dualisically, the fact that things manifest without truly existing is so amazing they burst into laughter.

Know the state of pure and total presence to be vast expanse, without center or border; it is everywhere the same, without acceptance or rejections. Blend the nature of mind and its habits patterns into nonduality.

Longchen Rabjampa, Drimé Özer (Wylie: Klong-chen rab-'byams-pa, Dri-med 'od-zer) "Longchenpa" (1308–1364) was a major teacher in the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism. Along with Sakya Pandita and Je Tsongkhapa, he is commonly recognized as one of the three main manifestations of Manjushri to have taught in Central Tibet. His major work is the Seven Treasures, which encapsulates the previous 600 years of Buddhist thought in Tibet. Longchenpa was a critical link in the esoteric and esoteric transmission of the Dzogchen teachings. He was abbot of Samye, one of Tibet's most important monasteries and the first Buddhist monastery established in the Himalaya, but spent most of his life travelling or in retreat.

Equal to the six ornaments of our world and the two supreme ones,
With a spirit of compassion, scriptural understanding, and realization,
Living as a hidden yogi, practicing in forest retreats ---
Longchenpa, the perfection of samsara and Nirvana as Dharmakaya*,
Drime Ozer, at your feet I pray.
Fill me with your blessing so that I may realize the natural state, the essence of my mind.

Since everything is but an apparition,
perfect in being what it is,
having nothing to do with acceptance or rejection, good or bad,
one may well burst out in laughter.

* - The Dharmakāya (Sanskrit: lit. "truth body" or "reality body")

The main practice is the recognition of the natural state. Through meditation involving bliss, clarity, and nonconceptuality, the clear light primordial wisdom free from conceptual elaboration arises as the fundamental innate mind.

As a beginner, it is most important that you secure your own well-being, guarding your mind in solitude, abandoning distractions and busyness, avoiding unfavorable situations, and subduing the mental afflictions with appropriate antidotes.

Below rocky cliffs,
a vivid sense of impermanence and disenchantment dawns,
clear and inspired, helping us to achieve
the union of calm abiding and penetrating insight.
