Lama Tsongkhapa

Destiny Fulfilled: Je Tsongkhapa’s Education As a Song of Realisation

Om! May we have happiness and excellences!

1. The eyes for the world to see higher realms of life and the freedom of enlightenment,

Resting place for those tired from wandering on the paths of cyclic existence,

The root of happiness and excellence, my kind Gurus

And the Noble Lord Wisdom Treasure (Manjushri)—I bow to your feet!

2. To gather a great store [of merit and wisdom] with little effort,

Rejoicing in virtue is praised as best.

Particularly, regarding the past virtues collected by oneself,

If you develop, without pride, great joy in your virtues of the past

It is said these past virtues will increase even more. Continua »

Thogme Zangpo

THE THIRTY-SEVEN PRACTICES OF ALL BUDDHAS’ SONS

(Rgyal-sras lag-len so-bdun-ma)
By Thogme Zangpo

I pay heartfelt homage to you, Lokesvara;
You have true compassion extending to all.

To those who in every coming and going
Have seen that each thing is inherently void,
And thus can devote both their time and their efforts
With one aim in mind – “Let me benefit all!”
To such foremost Gurus and you, Lokesvara,
All- seeing protector, with utmost respect
I bow down before you in constant obeisance,
And turn to your service my thoughts, words and deeds.

A Lamp for the Path of Enlightenment

by Atisha Dipankara Shrijnana

1 I bow in great reverence to all past, present and
Future Victors, to their Doctrine and Communities.
I shall light a Lamp for the Path to Enlightenment,
At the request of my good disciple Byang-chub-‘od.

2 In that they are Inferior or Mediocre or Superior,
Persons should be understood as three:
The characteristics of each are very clear,
and I shall note how they differ from one another.

3 One who by every means he finds,
Seeks by the pleasure of samsara,
And cares but for himself alone, that one
Is known as the Inferior Person. Continua »
