Lineage Prayer from the Longchen Nyingtik Ngöndro Guru Yoga[1]


In the heavenly realm, free from all dimensions and extremes,

Is the Primordial Buddha, the dharmakaya Samantabhadra;

His wisdom play, like the reflection of the moon in water, the sambhogakaya Vajrasattva;

Perfect with all buddha qualities, nirmanakaya Garab Dorje;

To you I pray: Grant me your blessings and empowerment!

Shri Singha, treasure of the ultimate Dharma;

Manjushrimitra, universal ruler of the Nine Yanas;

Jnanasutra, great pandita Vimalamitra;

To you I pray: Show me the way to make my mind free!

Padmasambhava, sole ornament of this world of ours,

Your supreme heart-disciples, Trisong Detsen, Vairotsana, and Yeshe Tsogyal;

Longchenpa, who revealed a vast ocean of wisdom mind treasures;

Jikme Lingpa, entrusted with the space treasury of the dakinis;

To you I pray: Grant me fruition and liberation!

Master of the Dharma, Changchub Dorje;[2][3]

The siddha, Jikme Gyalwe Nyugu;

Supreme among emanations, Mingyur Namkhé Dorje;

Son of the buddhas, Shenpen Thaye;[4]

To you I pray: Show me my true nature, my original face!

Glorious heruka, Do Khyentse Yeshe Dorje;

Patrul Rinpoche, Orgyen Jikme Chökyi Wangpo;

Lord of siddhas, Padma Vajra;[5]

Padmasambhava himself, great Khyentse Wangpo;

To you I pray: Grant me siddhis, ordinary and supreme!

Natsok Rangdrol,[6] who self-liberated all the phenomena of samsara and nirvana;

Omniscient Jikme Tenpe Nyima;

Embodiment of all sources of refuge, Chökyi Lodrö;[7]

To you I pray: Bless my mind, inspire my understanding!
