The Prayer to Guru Rinpoche for Removing Obstacles and Fulfilling Wishes
This is a very famous prayer, usually called ‘du sum sangye’ or ‘dorje tsik kang druk’ (Eng: Six Vajra Lines) to Guru Rinpoche as the embodiment of the buddhas of the three times―past, present, and future―in order to remove obstacles and ensure any aspirations are easily fulfilled. It’s a terma revelation of the great tertön, Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa. As it says in the colophon of the prayer:
“Discovered by the great terma-revealer Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa, from the right hand side of the Sengchen Namdrak rock on Mount Rinchen Tsekpa, ‘The Pile of Jewels’.Because the blessing of this prayer, one intended for this present time, is so immense, it should be treasured by all as their daily practice.”
In the life-story of Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa it tells of the discovery of another very famous terma, where this prayer was recited just before the terma was extracted:
“Everyone went to Karma Taktsang. At the end of town was a big cave where Guru Rinpoche had appeared as Dorje Drollö. There Chokgyur Lingpa sang many songs, saying, “Now I will take some termas. If everything is auspicious, and works out well, I have things to do for Tibet.” Even Khyentse Rinpoche was amazed and sang a lot of songs. Chokling told everyone to recite the Vajra Guru mantra and the Düsum Sangye prayer. He said, “If the three of us work together, we can really do something.” Proceeding to where the terma was located, Chokling Rinpoche put a note on a pine tree telling the guardian of the terma to give it to him. Then they went to a rock. Chokling opened the rock and extracted a vajra, leaving it half out and half in just for show. He removed a terma box and let everyone come and touch it with his head. That was the Lamrim Yeshe Nyingpo.” English and Tibetan Texts.
