Prayers Before Teachings Lay Mon Ten Drel Long Life Prayers Closing Prayers 6 2 3

Prayers Before Teachings I oer homage to the vajra masters and glorious buddhas of the three times. My mind free of duality, I take refuge in the eld of the Three Jewels. Please accept my pure oerings of riches, real and imagined. Without exception, I confess my misdeeds, hindrances that impede the river of aainment. Without engaging in aachment, I rejoice in the three wheels of pure dharma throughout the ten directions. I generate the complete and perfect mind of awakening that is not stained by the four extremes. To the sugatas and bodhisavas, I oer the body of the three purities [the universe, its beings, and their mindstreams]. Having gathered all the virtues enumerated in the succession of my lifetimes, I dedicate them to supreme awakening.

The [Universe] Mandala Oering This ground puried with perfumed water and strewn with owers, Mount Meru, the four continents, the sun, and moon: Having oered them as a buddhaeld, May all beings experience the pure realms.

Long Life Prayers A Long Life Prayer for the Tulku of H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche, Blossomed Lotus Buddha, Guide of All Beings, Exalted One who Accomplishes the Enlightened Activity of the Vidhyadaras Above the thousand petals of the Lotus Buddhas compassion, In the pollen heart blossomed with a wondrous emanation, Has appeared the guide of all beings, the envoy of the victors, the incomparable enlightened form, The merit and glory of fortunate disciples. You are the eorescence of the vidyadharas, the great being of the three secrets, the wish-fullling lord, Present here solely to fulll the hopes of all beings in the three planes of existence Whose needs and desires are met through your eortless enlightened activity. In ever-lasting essence, may your life remain rm. Through the power of the truth of the ocean of the Three Jewels and the Three Roots And through the strong abilities of the ve classes of male and female oath-bound ones, May the intent of our wishes and those of others spontaneously achieve fruition, And unhindered, may the great waves which benet beings reach perfect completion. At Shay-u Do, in the the region of Do-Kham (East Tibet), the child born in the family of the supreme spiritual master Tulku Jigme Chokyi Nyima has been unmistakably recognized as the second Dudjom Rinpoche, the reincarnation of the lord of refuge Dudjom Rinpoche Jigdral Yeshe Dorje. Since many great individuals, non-sectarians who are well-known throughout the Ancient and New schools, have unanimously conrmed the prophecies and signs, I am certain that it is true. Therefore, I, Sangye Dorje, the foolish, least worthy servant of the last incarnation of this master, have carelessly wrien this long-life prayer in a few words related to the oering of a name. May this prove virtuous and pleasing! Translated by Dechen Yeshe Wangmo
