A Great Treasure of Blessings — a collection of prayers to Guru Rinpoche translated and edited by Rigpa Translations, and published by Rigpa.

This book was first published by Dharmakosha for Rigpa, to celebrate the Wood-Monkey Year 2004-5 and was then revised and updated to celebrate the Fire Monkey Year 2016-7. The first edition was translated into French and German.

I am present in front of anyone who has faith in me,
Just as the moon casts its reflection, effortlessly,
In any vessel filled with water.
