5The Prayer to Guru Rinpoche that Spontaneously Fulfills All Wishes x3

 

E MA HO!

In Dewachen, Blissful pure realm of the west,
Amitabha’s compassionate blessing was aroused;
And he blessed his emanation, Padmasambhava,
To come into this world to bring benefit to all beings.
Compassionate one, you never cease to bring us help and well-being:
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

All the Dharma Kings, from Trisong Detsen,
Down to the very end of the royal line,
Throughout past, present and future, know your constant blessing.
You are the only protection for rulers who follow Dharma, as in Tibet
Compassionate one, you safeguard the lands that practise Dharma:
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

While your wisdom body subjugates the rakshasas in the south-west,
You look on sentient beings everywhere with compassion,
Magnificent guide for sentient beings led astray by ignorance,
Skilfully you teach them with their emotions so difficult to tame.
Compassionate one, your love is constant in its kindness and care:
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

Now, when this degenerate dark age reaches its final depths,
At dawn and dusk you come, for those that have devotion,
Riding on the rays of the rising and setting sun,
And on the tenth day of the waxing moon, you come in person.
Compassionate one, you act with vast power to help all beings:
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

Now in this dark age, the age of conflict, the final era of five-hundred parts,
The five poisons of the negative emotions grow ever more violent in all sentient beings-
Recklessly we indulge in destructive emotions, and let the poisons dominate our minds.
At a time like this, let your compassion be our refuge and protection.
Compassionate one, you lead those with devotion to the higher realms:
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

When terrifying armies of oppression encircle us,
Menacing the great centers of Dharma with destruction,
With no trace of doubt or hesitation we pray:
O Guru Rinpoche, with your retinue of the eight classes of gods and demons,
You will repel aggressors and their armies- of this we have no doubt!
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

When sickness strikes, to destroy the fragile bodies of sentient beings,
When diseases plunge us into unbearable suffering and agony,
With no trace of doubt or hesitation we pray:
O Guru Rinpoche, embodiment of the Buddha of Medicine,
You will remove the obstacles that bring untimely death.
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

When nature turns against us and Earth’s resources fail;
When sentient beings are tormented by the plague of famine,
With no trace of doubt or hesitation we pray:
O Guru Rinpoche, with all your dakinis and deities of prosperity,
You will dispel all deprivation, all hunger and thirst- of this we have no doubt.
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

When the destined revealers retrieve hidden treasures for the benefit of beings,
Courageous and confident of our pure unbroken samaya,
With no trace of doubt or hesitation we pray:
O Guru Rinpoche, inseparable from our yidam deity,
You will ensure the true heirs receive their father’s treasure- of this we have no doubt.
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

When travelling through hidden lands, forests and deserted places,
When our way is blocked and we are cut of by storms, by rain and snow,
With no trace of doubt or hesitation we pray:
O Guru Rinpoche, surrounded by mighty local deities,
You will lead us practitioners to the right path- of this we have no doubt.
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

When vicious wild animals menace us- tigers, leopards, bears and poisonous snakes,
On our way through wild, terrifying and desolate places,
With no trace of doubt or hesitation we pray:
O Guru Rinpoche, along with your ging warriors and protectors,
You will drive off these ferocious creatures- of this we have no doubt.
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

When obstacles arise in earth, water, fire and air,
To threaten these illusory bodies of ours with destruction,
With no trace of doubt or hesitation we pray:
O Guru Rinpoche, with the goddesses of the four elements,
You will harmonize the elements into their natural state- of this we have no doubt.
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

When travelling on dangerous routes,
If murderous bandits and robbers attack us,
With no trace of doubt or hesitation we pray:
O Guru Rinpoche, through your realization of the four mudras,
You will dispel the terror of all brutality and greed.
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

When faced by killers on all sides,
Who threaten us with lethal weapons,
With no trace of doubt or hesitation we pray:
O Guru Rinpoche, the protection of your vajra-tent
Will cause killers to panic and weapons to be scattered.
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

When this life-span is exhausted and we come to die,
If we are racked by the intense anguish and pain of dying,
With no trace of doubt or hesitation we pray:
O Guru Rinpoche, as you are the emanation of Buddha Amitabha,
It is certain we will be born in “the Blissful” pure realm of Dewachen:
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

Once this borrowed and illusory body is destroyed in the bardo realm,
When our deluded experiences and our further delusions arise to make us suffer,
With no trace of doubt or hesitation we pray:
O Guru Rinpoche, you who know past, present and future, through your compassion,
You will let all delusions be self-liberated- of this we have no doubt.
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

When we are overwhelmed by karma and circumstance,
And suffer through grasping at delusion as real,
With no trace of doubt of hesitation we pray:
O Guru Rinpoche, King of Great Bliss,
You will utterly destroy the delusions that bring suffering.
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!

When beings of all six realms are tormented by immense pain,
And especially when our leaders and people are engulfed in suffering,
With intense longing and devotion, from the depths of our hearts,
With no trace of doubt of hesitation we pray:
O Guru Rinpoche, with your unchanging, unwavering compassion- watch over us!
To the Lotus-born Guru of Orgyen we pray!
Grant your blessing, so all our wishes be spontaneously fulfilled!
